Fatmeh, who is a 29-year-old young woman, is married with two sons. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary, but it is not enough to cover the family's needs.
Fatmeh wants to have a computer in her house so she can enhance her skills in using a computer and have contact with others through it, so she is requesting a 1,200 USD loan from FATEN to cover the costs of purchasing a new computer. This will improve her skills in using a computer. Fatmeh is photographed in the picture.
