Saqer, who appears in the picture while at work, is a 27-year-old young man. He is married, and is the father of one son and two daughters.

For the past one and a half years, Saqer has had a barbershop, which has been a profitable project. However it needs more support and improvement so as to cover its costs and work in a better way.

Saqer is requesting a youth loan of 1,500 USD from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new barber kit and some necessary furniture items such as chairs and mirrors to provide a better quality of service to his loyal customers. This will improve Saqer's income positively and enable him to offer better living conditions to his family.
