Khadeja is photographed in her store where she sells clothes. She is a 31-year-old young woman, married with no children yet. Her husband is employed with a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's costs.
For the past three years, Khadeja has been running a store selling clothes, which has a good reputation among customers and is located in a good area, which makes her project a profitable one.
Khadeja is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing clothes in bulk for the coming summer season. This will offer Khadeja a new selection of summer clothes, which will enable her to compete with others well, increase her sales and improve the family's income.
