Shadi, 31 years old, is married with no children yet. He has operated an aluminum workshop for eight years, and it is a profitable project but not enough to cover the family's needs and work expenses. It is the family's only source of income. Shadi wants to purchase a new car for his personal use and to help him in carrying and traveling for work. He is requesting a $2,500 US loan from FATEN to help him complete the price of purchasing new car. This will improve both his family and work conditions. Shadi is photographed in his workshop.
