Wael is a 32-year-old young married man and a father to one son who is two years old. For the past three years, Wael has been operating a vehicle repairs workshop, which has been a profitable project, but not enough to cover his cost of living.

Wael is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new vehicle repair kit. This will improve Wael's work quality and increase demand from his customers to repair their vehicles. This will increase his income and offer to him better living conditions. Wael is photographed in the workshop.
