Dalal is the mother of two daughters and three sons. She is married to a municipality employee. One of Dalal's daughters is sick and needs urgent treatment that will cost the family lots of money that they can't afford. Dalal's family has government insurance, but it doesn't cover the expensive treatment the 6-year-old child needs. Dalal (who is in the photo) took out a loan from FATEN to pay for her daughter's treatment expenses.
