Hammad is a 53-year-old man. He is a driver and owns a public transportation bus. Hammad wants a loan of $1,500 to pay fees for car insurance and licensing. Due to Hammad's decent income, he couldn't pay the fees all together. Therefore, he took out a loan from FATEN, which helped him pay the fees and was easier on him to repay on a monthly basis.
The bus is the only source of income for Hammad's family. Hammad is photographed next to his bus.
