Wolfat is a conservative woman, so her husband, Ashraf, is photographed instead.
Wolfat is a 26-year-old young woman. She is married and her husband is a carpenter and has his own workshop. Wolfat wants to help her husband in purchasing a new carpentry kit to improve the quality of his work, but the amount of money she has isn't enough to pay, so she needs to take a loan amount of 1,500 USD from FATEN. When Wolfat gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, she will be able to help her husband in purchasing his new carpentry kit. This will improve his work and increase his income and offer to his family better life conditions.
