Othman is a 45-year-old married man. He lives with his wife and five children. Othman owns a small farm of olive trees which gives the family a seasonal income. He also drives a taxi. These two sources of income do not bring in enough money for the family's needs. One of Othman's sons is at university studying business administration.

Othman took out a loan from FATEN to pay his son's university fees. This loan helps the family by paying the studying expenses and ensuring Othman's son's bright future.
