Mariam is a young woman who is newly wedded. Her husband is an employee. The couple had to borrow money from relatives to pay for their wedding expenses. Mariam came to FATEN and borrowed $1500 to pay back the relatives. Then they only have to pay back FATEN on a monthly basis. Repaying FATEN is much easier for Mariam and her husband, as it is a fixed amount and on a monthly basis.

Mariam's husband appears in the picture here as she is a religious woman.
