Suhaieb, who appears in the photo, is a 26-year-old man who is engaged to be married. He is employed in a foodstuffs company and earns a small salary, which is not enough to cover all his costs.

Suhaieb is preparing his house to get married this summer so he is requesting a 2,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of purchasing necessary construction supplies, such as cement, bricks and tiles. This will enable Suhaieb to complete his house in less time and to prepare a suitable home for his coming life with his new wife.
