Lubna is a thirty-four-year-old woman. She is married and a mother to two sons and one daughter. Her husband is an employee in the local electricity company, but the salary he gets isn't enough to cover the family's needs. For the past two years, Lubna has been making and selling party gifts, which has been a profitable project, but also needs more support to cover the costs.
Lubna is requesting a 1,200 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing more party accessories and supplies to make party gifts. This will increase sales especially as occasions and parties increase during the summer season. It will also increase customers requests, which will help to improve the family's income.
