Shadi is a 19-year-old single young man. He is a taxi driver and earns a small salary that is not enough to cover his needs.
Shadi also is a university student who wants to complete his studies, so he is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of purchasing a new laptop. This will help Shadi do his homework and reports and help him in his studies. This will ensure a better future for Shadi and improve the family's living conditions. Shadi is photographed at the store where he is purchasing the laptop.
