Nidal is a 26-year-old married man with one daughter. For the past three years, Nidal has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income for the family. Nidal is asking for a loan from FATEN to help him buy a new engine for the taxi he drives. This will increase the taxi's capacity to work extra hours and enable Nidal to take additional internal and external requests, which will improve the family's income. Nidal is photographed next to his taxi.
