For the past three months, Ismael has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and a second source of income for him.
Ismael is requesting a USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new engine for the taxi he drives. This will increase the taxi's capabilities, allowing Ismael to work extra hours and enabling him to take additional internal and external requests, which will positively improve his income and ensure a better future for him.
