Noura is photographed in her beauty salon. She is a thirty-three-year-old young woman, married and a mother with two sons and one daughter. Her husband is a taxi driver who earns a salary, which is not enough to cover all the family's costs.

For the past fifteen years, Noura has been opening a beauty salon, which has been a profitable project.

Noura is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of improving the salon's condition such as: installing new internal decorations, installing mirrors and painting. This will improve the salon conditions by having a new look, which will attract new customers and increase Noura's income.
