Mahmoud is a 31-year-old young man. He is a father with four sons and one daughter.
For the past four years, he has had a store for selling fruits and vegetables, which is a profitable project and the only source of income to the family. Mahmoud has a lack in some types of fruits and vegetables that customers usually request, so he is requesting a USD 1,500 loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a collection of fruits and vegetables to resell. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
