Sabah is a young mother of two daughters and two sons. Sabah wants to purchase beds and daughters' room items as they are growing up and need to have a proper room.

Sabah took out a loan from FATEN to pay for those items as her husband is an employee with a very decent salary and can only afford a small payment every month that FATEN helped him get.

Sabah's husband is photographed instead of her as she is a conservative woman.
