Aya is a 24-year-old young woman who is married with no children yet. Her husband is a worker with a decent salary. Aya has a beauty salon located in a good area close to the place where she lives. The income she earns from the salon helps her and her husband with their living expenses.
Aya wants to make some improvements to the salon such as painting, installing lights, and making some decorations. She also wants to buy new beauty salon kits including hair creams, different types of hair brushes, hair dryers, etc. She would like to request a loan from FATEN to help her buy these things.
When Aya gets the loan, she will be able to pay for the necessary improvements to her salon and will be able to purchase new beauty salon kits. This will enable her to improve her salon and share the living expenses with her husband which will improve their living conditions. Aya is a conservative woman, so her husband Abdullateef is photographed instead.
