Omar is a 52-year-old man. He is married and a father to two sons and three daughters.
For the past seven years, Omar has had a stall for making and selling fresh juices such as orange juice, pomegranate juice, lemon juice and others. Omar is famous among customers because of the fresh and delicious fruit juices he makes, which are highly requested by customers. This demand makes the project a profitable one, but Omar needs more support to cover the rest of the costs.
Omar is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing another stall for his elder son, so he can make and sell fresh fruit juices to customers like his father. This will expand the family's project, which is their only source of income. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
