Yaseen is a thirty-five-year-old man, he is married with three sons and two daughters.
For the past four years, Yaseen has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income for the family, but also not enough to cover all the family's costs and needs.
Yaseen is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of insuring and licensing the taxi. This will make the taxi legal to move from one area to another and will enable Yaseen to take more clients from his area and other areas. This will improve the family's income.
