Adel is a 44-year-old married man with two sons and two daughters.
For the past four years, he has been driving a taxi which has been a profitable job and the only source of income for his family. His business needs more support from time to time.
Adel is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new engine for his taxi. This will increase the taxi's capacity to run for more hours and enable Adel to take additional customer requests which will improve the family's income.
