Ahmad is a 23-year-old young man. He is married with no children yet. For the past five years, he has been operating a store for selling all types of shoes, which has been a profitable project, but not enough to cover all costs.

Ahmad is requesting a 3,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new collection of summer season shoes to sell upon customers' requests. This will enable him to compete with others well, and this will lead to increased sales and improve his income.
