Dalal is a 33-year-old young woman. She is married and has seven sons and three daughters. Her husband works as a taxi driver and gets a low salary. She has her own project, which is a general store selling different products such as home products, toys, etc. This is another source of income for the family. Dalal wants to open a new section in her store for selling toys. She wants to purchase toys to have a good collection, but the amount of money she has isn't enough to pay, so she needs to take a loan of $3,000 from FATEN. When Dalal gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, she will be able to pay for purchasing toys, open a new section in her store and have a good collection to sell. This loan will change her life for the better and will increase her income because her store is located in a well-known area and she has her customers. Dalal is photographed in the picture with her son in her store.
