Thaera is a young wife and the mother of three daughters and one son. Thaera's husband is a cement and concrete factory guard. Thaera and her family moved to a bigger house last year and the house urgently needed painting. Thaera borrowed money from her parents to pay for the painting and couldn't repay the entire amount. She therefore took out a loan from FATEN and repaid her parents, as it's easier for her husband to repay the money in smaller amounts to FATEN.
Thaera's husband appears in the photo instead of her as she is a religious woman.
