Bassam is a 38-year-old man. He is married and a father to three sons and three daughters. All of his children are school students.

For the past twenty years, Bassam has been selling baked goods and different types of sweets. This has been a profitable project, but he also needs more support to cover the family's needs.

Bassam is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing new sweets templates and a new stove. Taking this loan will enable Bassam to improve the quality of his baked goods and sweets and to satisfy his customers. This will lead to an increase in production and so increase sales and improve the family's income.
