Laila is a 44-year-old woman and a mother of six children. She owns a grocery store. She wants a loan of $3,000 to have a better income by increasing the variety of items she sells as grocery stores are in big numbers in the area where she lives. Laila's store is on a big shopping street and has a good chance of increasing the number of customers. Laila came to FATEN to take out the needed loan.

Laila is a conservative woman. Therefore, her husband is photographed instead in the store.
