Noor, 36 years old, is married with two sons. He works selling used home appliances with a low income, which is not enough to cover the family's needs. Noor's wife is a university student specialized in Arabic Language. Noor wants to help his wife to continue her studies and graduate to get the first university degree, so he is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help his wife cover the university fees to complete the session. This will create a bright future for his wife and help her to get better job conditions after graduating, so she will share with her husband the task of covering the family's needs and they can live in better conditions. Noor is photographed in the picture.
