Jamal is a 56-year-old man, he is married and a father to four sons and two daughter. One of his sons is employed and one of his daughters is a university student.
For the past ten years, Jamal has been working in medicinal herbs that customers usually use to be treated for seasonal illnesses such as cold, cough, etc. He has a good reputation among his customers, which makes his project a profitable one with good customer demand in all seasons.
Jamal is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing a collection of medicinal herbs that customers often request and buy. This will increase sales and improve Jamal's income positively.
