Ilham is a 39-year-old married mother of three sons and three daughters; her husband and one of her daughters are workers with decent salaries. Ilham, who sells gas canisters to earn income, wants to improve her business and income by purchasing more canisters for sale. She is therefore requesting a loan, to be repaid on a monthly basis, of $2,000 from FATEN, to make the purchase. The additional resulting income will enable Ilham to provide better living conditions for her family.
