Shahd, who appears in the picture holding the laptop she purchased, is a 25-year-old single young woman.
Shahd's father is a taxi driver and her brother is employed. Also she is employed, but gets a low salary which is not enough to cover her needs.
Shahd wants to improve her status at work by speeding the process of doing her work; also she wants to enhance her skills in using computers, so she is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing a new laptop. This will help Shahd to enhance her position at work and ensure her a better future.
