Nibal is a 48-year-old woman. She is married with two sons and three daughters. Her husband works in selling vintage items and has a low income. He wants to buy a vehicle to help him in selling vintage items in many areas to expand his work.
Nibal wants to help her husband to get such a vehicle to increase the family income, so she needs to get a loan of $3,000 from FATEN. When Nibal gets the loan, she will enable her husband to purchase a vehicle that will help him to sell vintage items in many areas and work extra hours to increase his income and offer to his family better living conditions. Nibal is a conservative woman, so her son, who is over 18 years old, is photographed instead.
