Khadeja is a 30-year-old young woman. She is married with three sons and two daughters. Her husband has had a store selling secondhand home furniture and home appliances for one year. It is the only source of income for the family, but not enough to cover the family's needs.
Khadeja wants to share with her husband in purchasing in bulk secondhand home furniture and appliances in order to have a better collection to resell and increase the family's income, so Khadeja is requesting a loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing. This will increase sales and improve the family's income. Khadeja is a conservative woman, so her husband is photographed instead in the FATEN branch.
