Ahmad is a 22-year-old young man. He is single and lives with his family. Ahmad's father works as an employee in the public sector and gets a low wage that is not enough for the family's needs. Ahmad has been working in a barber shop for three years. This is a profitable project, but it needs more money to be improved.

Ahmad requested a loan from FATEN. This loan will help Ahmad to buy a new chair for his barber shop and also do some decoration. This will increase Ahmad's income.
