Ahmad is a 23-year-old single young man. For the past year, Ahmad has been working in transporting goods to clients by driving a rickshaw. Ahmad wants to have independence in his work. By owning his own rickshaw, he would be able to work freely and improve his income.

Ahmad has an amount of money which is not enough to cover the price of purchasing a new rickshaw. Thus he is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to complete the cost of purchasing the rickshaw. Taking this loan will enable Ahmad to have his own rickshaw and enable him to increase efforts to work extra hours and increase his income in order to ensure to himself better future.
