Sameer is a 58-year-old man who is married with two sons and two daughters. He works as a bus driver for a local kindergarten and also works in agriculture to earn additional income. Sameer's work is profitable, but he needs more support to cover its cost.

Sameer is requesting a loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of licensing and insuring the bus he drives. His loan will enable him to be a safer driver and move freely from one area to another. In this photograph, Sameer appears in the bus he drives.
