Abdelhaleem is a 29-year-old single man; he lives with his family in Beddya village near Nablus in modest to fair living conditions. His family work in agriculture and the income they get isn't much enough to cover all their needs.
For the past one year, Abdelhaleem has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income for him. He has a good reputation among his clients because of treating them well.
Abdelhaleem is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of painting the taxi and making some necessary repairs such as changing the taxi mats and mirrors.
This will improve the taxi's condition and increase Abdelhaleem's income.
