Majdi is a 31-year-old young man. He is married and a father to three sons and one daughter. Majdi is a Municipal employee who earns a low salary, not enough to cover all of the family's needs.

Majdi wants to improve his house's condition to offer better living conditions to his family, so he is requesting a USD 2,000 loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing paints and hiring workers to paint the house. This will ensure better living conditions for Majdi and his family so that they will enjoy living in their house.
