Hamdan is a 38-year-old man. He is married and a father to two sons and two daughters. He is employed, but his low salary isn't enough to cover the family's needs. For the past four years, Hamdan has had a grocery store, which has been a profitable project, but not enough to cover the costs.

Hamdan is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing needed stock of basic groceries that customers often request, such as rice, sugar, and milk. This will increase sales and increase Hamdan's income.
