Amjad is 33 years old, married and has two sons, both students. For the past 10 years, Amjad has run a cosmetics store selling different types of cosmetics and women's accessories. This business is distinguished by its location in a high-traffic area and it has many loyal customers. It is a profitable business and the only source of income for Amjad and his family, but also it needs financial support from time to time to meet expenses.
Amjad is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing a new collection of cosmetics and accessories to sell. This will attract more customers having more choices and buying, which will increase sales and improve Amjad's income.
