Ikhlas is one of FATEN’s clients. She is a tailor and has received several loans, starting with 300 USD and has paid them all in full and on time. She first took her loans in a group, guaranteed by the other members, but this one will be an individual loan.
Ikhlas is married with five children aged 1 to 10 years old. Her husband is a daily worker in a restaurant.
When she started with FATEN a few years ago she had only one sewing machine. Now she has machines of different types like sewing, cleaning, etc. She works out of her house and she needs the loan to buy another machine. She appears in the photo sewing.
