Ibrahem is a 52-year-old man. He is married with four sons and three daughters, and he works in fruit and vegetables sales. Some of his sons are workers with decent salaries. Ibrahem wants to expand his work by purchasing bulk vegetables and fruit to sell. Also, he uses a vehicle in his work and wants to pay part of its price, but the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay, so he needs to take out a loan of $3,000 from FATEN. When Ibrahem gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will be able to purchase bulk fruit and vegetables so he will have a larger collection for sale; also he will pay part of the price for the vehicle he purchased for work purposes. This will enable Ibrahem to increase his income and live in better living conditions. Ibrahem is photographed next to his vehicle.
