Haitham is a young man, 26 years old. He is married and a father to one son. Haitham is employed and earns a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.

For the past two years, Haitham has had a store for selling men's clothes, which has been profitable and a second source of income for the family. Haitham has many loyal customers, because he offers high-quality clothes, and his store is well-located.

Haitham is requesting a USD loan from FATEN, to cover the cost of purchasing and bringing into the store, a new collection of men's clothes. This will increase sales and improve Haitham's income. Haitham's photo was taken in his store.
