Khawla, 42 years old, is the mother of three sons and five daughters. Her husband is a worker earning a low income. For the past 5 years, Khawla has been making embroideries for sale. She wants to bulk purchase missing textiles and threads necessary to make embroideries for resale, but the family income is low and not enough to cover these expenses. Khawla needs to take a loan from FATEN to purchase these materials to continue her work as she has a lot of customer requests for her embroideries. This loan will enable her to increase her embroideries and her sales, which will improve her income and offer better living conditions for her family.
