Ihsan is a 32-year-old man. He is married and a father to one son and two daughters. Ihsan is employed and receives a low salary, which is not enough to cover his family's needs. For the past two years, Ihsan has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and a second source of income for the family.
Ihsan is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of making necessary repairs to the taxi he drives such as painting, and installing new wheels and lights. This will increase the taxi's capacity to work extra hours and enable Ihsan to take additional requests, which will improve the family's income. Ihsan is photographed next to his taxi.
