Omar, who was photographed next to some gas canisters he has, is a 22-year-old, single man. Omar lives with his family, in a modest house in a small village. For the past five years, Omar has had his project, selling and distributing gas canisters to customers in his village. He is well-known in his village and has a lot of loyal customers, which makes his project a profitable one. It is the only source of income to him, but now it needs more support to cover some costs.

Omar is requesting a US Dollar youth loan from FATEN, to cover the cost of purchasing additional gas canisters. Taking this loan will increase sales and improve Omar's project, increasing his income, which will ensure to him a better future.
