Raed is a 47-year-old married man and a father to two sons and two daughters; their ages are between 18 and 10 years old. Raed is a local university employee who gets a small salary, which is not enough to cover all the family's needs.
Raed wants to improve his living conditions and make his life easier, so he is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him complete the price of purchasing a vehicle. Taking this loan will enable Raed to own a personal vehicle, which will facilitate his movement and also the rest of his family members.
