Fares is a 31-year-old married young man. He lives in Gaza City with his wife.

For the past year, Fares has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income for his family.

Fares is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new engine for the taxi he drives. This will increase his taxi's capacity to work extra hours and will enable Fares to take additional internal and external requests, which will improve Fares' income positively.
