Fida, who appears in the picture with her younger son, is married and a mother to three sons and one daughter. Her husband is a worker who gets a low salary that is not enough to cover the family's needs.

Fida is a tailor and has a good reputation among her loyal customers. She wants to live with her family in suitable home conditions, so she is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help cover the costs to complete finishing the house by installing windows and doors, painting and installing tiles. This will offer Fida and her family a suitable house and comfortable living conditions.
