Na'ema is a 62-year-old woman. She is married and has four sons and four daughters, all of them are married except one of her sons, who is employed and has a decent salary.
Na'ema wants to open a small entertainment business by purchasing a number of computers to open a store for customers who like to play computer games. But, the amount of money she has isn't enough, so she needs to take a loan in the amount of $1,000 from FATEN. When Na'ema gets the loan, she will be able to purchase a number of computers she needs to open the business. This will enable her to open her business successfully and have many customers who enjoy playing computer games, which will lead to improving her income and better life conditions.
