Aziza is a 62-year-old woman; she is married and has seven sons and four daughters. She has her own business of selling fruits and vegetables.
Because a feast is right around the corner there is an opportunity to sell large amounts and generate more income, so she needs to purchase fruits and vegetables in bulk to sell and increase her income. Aziza hasn't enough money to pay for this, so she needs to take a loan of $3,000 from FATEN.
When Aziza gets this FATEN loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, she will be able to purchase more fruits and vegetables and increase her income so her family will have a better standard of living. Aziza is photographed in the place she sells fruits and vegetables.
