Sami is a 27-year-old single young man. For the past four years, Sami has had a store of electrical appliances and electrical extensions. It is the only store of its type in the area where Sami lives, which makes the project distinguished and it enjoys good customer demand. This project has been a profitable one and the only source of income to Sami, but it needs more support to cover costs.

Sami is requesting a USD youth loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing electrical goods and extensions that customers often buy and use. This will increase sales, Sami's income, and ensure better living conditions.
