Fawzi is a 54-year-old man. He is married and a father to six sons and four daughters. Fawzi has a farm planted with olive trees, but the income he gets from selling his olive crop is low and not enough to cover all the family's needs.
For the past five years, Fawzi has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the second source of income for the family.
Fawzi is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of licensing and insuring the taxi he drives. This will enable Fawzi to travel legally and safely from one area to another and take additional internal and external requests, which will improve the family's income.
