Saed is requesting a 1,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing new shapes of gypsum and a new manufacturing kit. This will improve Saed's work quality and increase demand from his customers. This will increase his income and offer to him and to his family better living conditions.
