Ameen is a 30 year old married man and a father to a son. He lives with his family in a small village that is famous for agriculture.
Ameen and his family have been working in agriculture for a long time. He has a greenhouse growing different types of seasonal vegetables, which has been a profitable project and enabled Ameen to open a small store to sell fruits and vegetables.
Ameen is requesting a 1,000 USD Youth Loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing cucumber seedlings to plant in the greenhouse he owns. This will permit Ameen to produce a better crop and thus increase his sales and improve the family's income.
