Ahmad is a 22-year-old single young man. He operates a barber shop, which is distinguished by its location (where there is a lot of traffic). He has many loyal customers and a good reputation among them.

Ahmad's project has been a profitable one, and it is the only source of income for him, but from time to time, he needs more support to cover the cost of making improvements.

Ahmad is requesting a 1,500 USD youth loan from FATEN to cover the cost of painting his shop and buying new decorations, such as shelves and ceiling fixtures.

This will make his barbershop attractive and give a new image to his shop, which will attract new customers and satisfy the loyal ones. This will lead to improving Ahmad's income positively and ensuring a bright future for him.
