Eman is a 37-year-old divorced woman and mother to three sons and three daughters who live with her. For the past five years, Eman has been operating a beauty salon located in the city's center, which is a good movement area, and her beauty salon has been profitable. But it is the only source of income for Eman and her children, and it needs more support to cover her family's needs and the costs.
Eman gives beauty training courses in her salon to women who wish to open beauty salons in the future, so Eman wants to expand her beauty salon by adding new decorations to the side that will be used for holding training courses.
Eman is requesting a 1,400 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the expenses of installing new decorations and improving the salon's condition. This will fund a suitable space to hold training courses in, increase the number of trainees and improve the family's income.
