Naem is a 26-year-old young man. He has a workshop for maintaining computers to resell. His father is a construction worker with a decent salary.
Naem wants to purchase a new maintenance kit to improve the quality of his work; he also wants to expand his work by purchasing more computers to maintain and resell, in order to increase his income. However, the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay, so he needs to take a loan of $2,000 from FATEN.
When Naem gets the loan, he will be able to expand and improve his workshop by purchasing a new kit and more computers. He will be able to compete well and increase his sales and income and therefore live in better conditions. Naem is photographed in his workshop.
