Ahmad is a 25-year-old single young man. For two and a half years he has been opening a stationery store, as well as providing public services to students such as: printing and copying documents and reports, translating documents. This has been a profitable project and the only source of income for him, but does not yet bring in enough money to cover Ahmad's expenses and cover the costs of work.

Ahmad is requesting a 1,500 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new copier machine and more stationery items to improve his work. This will increase sales and improve Ahmad's income. Ahmad is photographed in his store.
