Fahmi is a 25-year-old single young man. For the past four years, he has had a bookstore selling different types of stationary. The bookstore is located in a good movement area and next to a local school. It is considered a profitable business but also needs more support to cover the costs.

Fahmi is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing a variety of stationary items that are usually in high demand from the pupils' side. This will improve the bookstore's condition and increase sales. Fahmi's income will improve which will ensure to him a bright future and better living conditions.
