Asmahan is a 42-year-old married woman, and a mother of three sons and three daughters. Her husband is a worker who earns a low salary which is not enough to cover the family's needs and costs.
For the past seven years, Asmahan has been operating a grocery store, which has been a profitable project for the family.
Asmahan is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing necessary groceries that customers usually request, such as flour, milk, rice, etc. This will help to increase sales and improve the family's income.
Asmahan and her husband appear in the picture, which was taken in her grocery store.
