Ali is a 30-year-old man. He is married and a father to three daughters between 5 and 2 years old.

For the past four years, Ali has had a barber shop, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income to Ali, but also it needs more support from time to time.

Ali wants to renew the old barber kit he uses, so he is requesting a USD youth loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing a new barber kit. This will improve the quality of his work and increase his income, which will enable him to offer better living conditions to his family.
