Salam, age 21 and unmarried, has been selling clothing for the past two years. His store is located in a good commercial market and he has many loyal customers. He enjoys a good reputation, which helps make his enterprise a profitable one. This business is his only source of income.

At the present time, Salam needs more support to cover some of his business costs. He is therefore requesting a USD Youth loan from FATEN in order to cover the cost of purchasing a new collection of summer clothes to offer for sale. This investment will attract more customers to his store and will increase sales, thus positively improving his income.
