Omar is a 39-year-old married man and a father to three sons and five daughters all of them are below 18 years old. For the past eight years, Omar has been selling mobile phones to customers, his store located in a good commercial area in the market and has many loyal customers, which makes his project a profitable one and the only source of income to the family, but also needs more support to cover some costs.
Omar has took a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of purchasing additional new collection of mobile phones to sell. This will increase demand from his customers to buy new mobiles. This will increase his income and offer to him better living conditions. Omar is photographed in his store.
