Mo'tasem is a 28-year-old young married man. He has a cafe with pool tables and also works in installing air conditioning to improve his income. Mo'tasem wants to expand his cafe by purchasing additional pool tables, but he does not have enough money for the purchase, so he needs to take out a loan in the amount of $3,000 from FATEN. When Mo'tasem gets the loan, he will purchase additional pool tables. This will increase the number of tables he has in the cafe, so his customers will increase and his income will increase too. He will be able to provide better living conditions for his family. Mo'tasem is photographed next to the pool table he has in the cafe.
