Ola (husband, Bashar in photo) is a 37-year-old married woman and the mother to three sons and two daughters. She makes embroideries, upon her customers request.
For the past year, Ola's husband has been selling cosmetics and accessories, which has been a profitable endeavor, but the profit is not enough to cover the family's needs and the store's costs.
Ola is requesting a $3,000 loan from FATEN to help cover the costs of purchasing more cosmetics and accessories for resale. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
Ola (husband in photo) is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online.
