AbdelKareem is a 41-year-old man. He is married and a father to three sons and three daughters. His wife is a housewife. He is a services employee at a local university in the city where he lives, but the low salary he earns isn't enough to cover all of the family's needs.

For the past four years, AbdelKareem has had a sewing workshop for sewing clothes for customers, which has been a profitable project and a second source of income to the family.

AbdelKareem is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing additional thread and fabrics to meet the increasing customers' demand and to provide better quality to his loyal customers. This will increase sales and improve AbdelKareem's income.
