Sa'eda is a 33-year-old young woman. She is married with two sons and three daughters. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. Sa'eda wants to make some home decorations such as paintings and also wants to purchase some necessary home furniture such as living room furniture and a kitchen table, but the amount of money she has isn't enough to pay, so she needs to take a loan of amount $1,000 from FATEN.
