Waleed is a 46-year-old, married man. For the past one year, Waleed has been a taxi driver. This business has been the only source of income to his family. He owns this taxi, but also he still has installments to pay, to complete paying for its purchase.
Waleed lives with his wife and seven sons, all of whom are under 18 years of age. His income barely covers the family's needs.
Waleed requested a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help Waleed to refinance the remaining amount he owes on the loan he took to buy the taxi. Waleed appears in the photo, next to his taxi.
