Hala is a 34-year-old young woman. She is married and a mother with two sons and two daughters. Her husband is a worker who gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past five years, Hala has a workshop for tailoring clothes. She is well-known to customers and the owners of clothing stores, which helped her to have a profitable project for the family.
Hala is requesting a $1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing needed textiles and threads to tailor clothes that customers request. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
