Shorook is a 25 year old young woman. She is married and a mother to one son and one daughter. Shorook has a store for selling clothes. She established this profitable project three years ago and she wants to purchase winter clothes, in bulk, to resell and to increase her income, which is the only source of income for the family.
Shorook has an amount of money which is not enough to pay for supplies for her store. She needs to take a loan amount of $3,000 from FATEN. When Shorrok gets the loan, she will be able to purchase winter clothes in bulk. This will enable her to have a better collection of winter clothes and enable her to compete with other stores well. She will satisfy her customers' needs and increase her sales and her income. This will all lead to providing the family with better living conditions. Shorook is photographed in her store.
