Akram is a 43-year-old man. He is married and a father of four sons and five daughters. He is a school bus driver, who gets a low salary which is not enough to cover the family's costs.

For the past 20 years, Akram has also been selling clothes, which has been a profitable project.

Akram has a store for selling clothes in a high traffic area. He is requesting a loan from FATEN to help cover the costs of purchasing a new collection of clothes for sale. This will enable Akram to compete with others well and thus increase sales and improve the family's income. Akram is photographed in his store.
