Lubna is a 40-year-old woman. She is married and has three sons and one daughter. Her husband is a worker with a low income and her daughter is employed with a decent salary. Lubna sells embroideries and wants to improve her business to increase her income. She wants to purchase more textiles and threads to improve her embroidery business, but the amount of money she has isn't enough, so she needs to take a loan from FATEN for this purpose. When Lubna gets the loan, she will be able to purchase more textiles and threads and have a better collection to compete with other embroidery vendors and increase her sales and so increase her income.
