Osaid is a 21-year-old single man. He is a tailor and has a sewing workshop. His brother is a worker, and both are earning a low income which is not enough to cover their family's needs.

Osaid is requesting a USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of purchasing a new sewing machine. This will increase the quality and productivity of his workshop which will satisfy his customers, increase sales and improve the family's income.
