Bassam, who appears in the photo, is a 48-year-old married man and a father to two sons and two daughters. He is employed and gets a small salary that is barely enough to cover the family's needs.
He is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of purchasing new bedroom furniture in order to improve the living conditions in his house. Taking this loan will offer to Bassam and his wife comfortable furniture so both of them can enjoy living in their house.
