Abdullah, who appears in the photo, is a 26-year-old single young man. Abdullah lives with his family in a village famous for its olive trees in addition to its different and rich crops. Abdullah and his family have been working in agriculture, but the income the family earns is not enough to cover all their needs.

For the past three years, Abdullah has been operating a blacksmith shop; he has a good reputation among his loyal customers, and it has been a profitable project, but also it needs more support to cover the cost.

Abdullah is requesting a 3,000 USD Youth loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing iron for his workshop. This will support Abdullah's work and improve his income, which will ensure his bright future.
