Mohammad is a 19-year-old, single man. His father is a construction worker, who earns a low salary that is not enough to cover all of the family's needs.

For the past two years, Mohammad has operated a small restaurant (pictured), where he offers light meals and sandwiches, as well as soft and hot drinks, to his customers. He explains that the restaurant has been a profitable project, but that he needs more financial support to cover the costs.

As a result, Mohammad is requesting a loan in the amount of $800 from FATEN to cover the costs of purchasing necessary supplies for the restaurant (such as plates, cups, and spoons) in addition to soft drinks. He expects that the loan will help to improve the restaurant and to attract more customers to the restaurant, which would in turn increase Mohammad's income and enable him to improve his living conditions.
