Tamara is a 32-year-old young woman. She is married and a mother to two sons. Her husband is employed and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs and to pay the medical expenses.
Tamara suffers from a pain in her back and her right leg and she needs urgent surgery, so she is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her pay her medical expenses. This will improve her health and enable her to live under normal conditions with the family. Tamara is photographed in the picture while she is in the hospital.
