Suliman is a 36-year-old man. He is married and a father to three sons and two daughters. His wife is a housewife.
For the past three years, Suliman has had a small sewing workshop, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income for the family. Now it needs more support to cover the costs. Suliman wants to meet the increasing demand from customers in less time, so he is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN. He will use the loan to cover the cost of purchasing another sewing machine. This will improve his work and satisfy his customers. It will also increase the amount of work he can do each day, which will improve his income. As a result, he will be able to create better living conditions for the family. Suliman is photographed inside his sewing workshop.
