Shown here next to his rig, Raed is 37, single and lives with his mother and his elder sister. He is responsible for all of their living costs.

For the past eighteen years Raed has been a trucker, hauling goods from one place to another. It’s been a profitable business.

Raed is applying for a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of maintenance on his rig, such as replacing the engine and buying new tires and mirrors. This will increase his ability to work extra hours and take on additional long-haul jobs. All this will improve Raed's income.
