Ibrahim is a 26-year-old married young man and has no children yet. For the past eight years, Ibrahim has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income for the family. However, from time to time, the taxi needs more support to cover the operating costs.

Ibrahim is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new engine for the taxi he drives. This will increase the taxi's capacity to work extra hours and enable Ibrahim to take additional internal and external requests, which will improve the family's income positively and enable them to live in better conditions.
