Rami is a 31-year-old young married man. He is a father of two sons and one daughter.

For the past three years, Rami has had a sewing workshop for sewing and selling clothes to customers. It has been a profitable project, but also not enough to cover the costs.

Rami wants to expand the size of his workshop to meet the high demand of customers’ requests, as he has a good reputation in the market. So he is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of purchasing an additional new sewing machine. This will increase the number of sewing machines he has in the workshop, which will help him to finish sewing clothes on time. This will lead to increased sales and will improve the family's income.
