Fayza is a 42-years-old mother of two daughters and three sons. Her oldest son graduated and wanted to have his own job, so she helped using her savings to rent a store and prepare it to become a grocery store.

Fayza's son (who appears in the picture here instead of his conservative mother) needs to purchase more goods and to use the other half of the store, so his mother took out a loan from FATEN to purchase and install shelves in the store.

Fayza's husband has retired therefore the store is the only source of income for the seven members family.
