Yazan is a 27-year-old married man and a father to two sons. Yazan is employed and receives a low salary which is not enough to cover all of his family's needs.

For the past three years Yazan has been driving a taxi which has been a profitable project and a second source of income for the family.

Yazan 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 Yazan to take additional internal and external requests which will improve the family's income.
