Mohammad is a 22-year-old single young man. He is a worker in a fuel station and gets a low salary that is not enough to cover his cost of living. He wants to start his own project, which is a store for selling mobile phones, so he is requesting a 2,500 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of purchasing a collection of mobile phones to start selling to customers. Taking this loan will enable Mohammad to have his own business and ensure a better future for him and improve his living conditions. Mohammad is photographed in the picture in his store.
