Hanan wants to renew her home furniture. Since her husband earns a decent salary, she needs to take a loan of amount $1,000 from FATEN. Hanan needs to change the furniture because when she got married, her husband wasn't able to purchase bedroom furniture or a kitchen table and he borrowed them from parents and friends.
