Samar is a 40-year-old woman; she is married and the mother of two sons and four daughters. Her husband is a worker who is paid a low salary. He also raises and sells sheep and sheep products. That business has been a profitable project, but he and Samar need more support to cover the family's needs.
Samar has her own project. She purchases clothes to resell. That has also been a profitable project, but from time to time she needs support to cover her project's costs.
Samar is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing a new collection of summer clothes to satisfy her customers and compete with other sellers. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
