Mohammad, who is pictured next to his taxi, is a 31-year-old single young man.
For the past three years, Mohammad has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income to the family.
Mohammad is requesting a 2,200 USD loan from FATEN to help him complete the price of purchasing the taxi and to cover the costs of licensing and insuring the taxi he drives. Having his own taxi will enable Mohammad to take additional internal and external requests and work extra hours. This will improve his income and ensure him a better future.
