He is employed, but earns very low wages. Bassam would like to improve the living conditions for his family, so he would like to earn additional income by working as a taxi driver.
Bassam explains that he has a car but that it needs vehicle mats, a license, and an insurance policy for taxi services. As a result, Bassam is seeking a $1,000 loan from FATEN, which would help Bassam prepare his car so that it could operate as a legal taxi. Bassam appears in the photo beside his car.
