Fouad is a 20-year-old single man. His father is employed yet earns a low salary, which is not enough to cover all the family's needs.

For the past one and a half years, Fouad has operated a small sewing workshop where he sews clothes for customers. This has been a profitable project.

Fouad is requesting a $2,000 youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing an additional sewing machine to provide better quality work to his loyal customers. This will increase his sales and improve Fouad's income.
