Eman is a 32-year-old young woman who is married, has five sons and one daughter, and whose husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee with decent salary.

Eman has a grocery store and wants to purchase more groceries to have a better collection for sale and increase her income. She doesn't have enough cash to pay for this, so she needs to take out a loan of $1,000 from FATEN. When Eman gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, she will be able to purchase more groceries and have a better collection for sale. In this way she will increase her income and provide a better standard of living to her family.
