Mohammad is a 41-year-old man. He is married and is the father to two sons and one daughter.
For the past five years, Mohammad has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income to his family.
Mohammad is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new engine for the taxi he drives and to pay for the costs of licensing it. This will increase the taxi capacity, thereby enabling him to work extra hours and to take additional internal and external requests, which will improve his family's income positively.
