Saber, who appears in the picture next to his taxi, is a 28-year-old single young man. For the past four years, he has been a taxi driver, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income for him. Even so, he needs more support to cover his needs and the taxi's cost.

Saber is requesting a 1,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of repairing the taxi and improving its condition, such as painting, installing new mirrors and wheels. This will improve the taxi's condition and enable Saber to work extra hours and take more requests, which will improve his income and ensure a better future.
