Mohammad is a 32-year-old married man and a father to two sons and one daughter. He is employed and gets a small salary which is not enough to cover the family's costs of living.
For the past five years, Mohammad has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project, but he also needs more support from time to time to cover some urgent costs.
Mohammad is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of licensing and insuring the taxi he drives. This will enable Mohammad to move freely from one area to another and take additional internal and external requests, which will improve the family's income positively.
