Obada, who appears in the picture, is a 22-year-old single young man. For the past three years, Obada has been operating a motorcycle repair workshop, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income for him. But it is not enough to cover his cost of living.

Obada is requesting a 1,500 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing necessary spare parts for repairing motorcycles. This will improve Obada's work quality and increase the demand from his customers to repair their motorcycles. This will increase his income and offer better living conditions for him.
