Kawkab is a 63-year-old widowed woman with three sons and two daughters. Kawkab lives in Qalqilia city in Palestine and owns a shop selling computers and computer accessories.
Kawkab wants to expand her shop by purchasing a variety of accessories. As Kawkab doesn't have the liquidity to pay now for the accessories, she came to FATEN and took out a loan to pay for them. FATEN's loan will help Kawkab expand her business and attract more clients without exhausting her financial situation.
