Mahmoud is a 50-year-old man. He is married and has five sons. He has a store for clothing sales, which is the only source of income for the family. Mahmoud wants to purchase winter clothes in bulk to have a larger collection for sale, but the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay. He needs to take out a loan of $2,000 from FATEN. When Mahmoud gets the loan, he will be able to pay for the bulk purchase of winter clothes, so he will have a better collection to compete with others and sell more. His income will increase and he will have the ability to offer better living conditions for his family.
