Nader is a 23-year-old married young man and the father of one son; he lives with his family in modest living conditions in a small house.
For the past three years, Nader has been driving a taxi. He is well known among his customers, and has a good reputation among them. Nader is photographed next to his taxi.
This makes his project a profitable one, and the only source of income for the family. But, from time to time, his taxi needs more support to cover necessary costs.
Nader is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new engine for the taxi he drives, and making necessary repairs, such as painting. This will increase the ability to work extra hours, and enable Nader to take additional internal and external requests, which will positively impact the family's income.
