Mostafa is a 27-year-old young man who is married but with no children yet. For the past five years he has been operating a hair salon (the photo shows him working in his shop). His business is a profitable one, but he needs more money to cover the couple’s needs.

Mostafa is requesting a 1,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of buying more salon supplies such as hair dryers and different types of hair brushes and scissors. This will improve the quality of his work and further satisfy his loyal customers. He feels this will lead to more customers and so improve his income.
