Rafiq is a 49-year-old married man. For the past eight years, Rafiq has had a grocery store selling different types of groceries. It has been a profitable project and the only source of income to him, but he also needs more support to cover the costs.
Rafiq is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing needed stocks of basic groceries and sweets that customers often request and buy, such as rice, sugar and milk. This will increase sales and increase Rafiq's income.
