For cultural reasons, Yasmeen prefers that her photo not be on the Internet. Thus the photo is of her husband.
Yasmeen is a 28 year old young woman. She is married and a mother to two sons and one daughter. Her husband is employed and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.
Yasmeen's husband wants to buy a taxi and use it to take customers' requests. It will be another source of income to the family and help them to improve their living conditions.
Yasmeen wants to share with her husband in purchasing the taxi, so she is requesting a USD loan from FATEN. Taking this loan will enable Yasmeen's husband to have his own project, which will be a profitable one and will lead to improve their living conditions.
