Ola is a Palestinian married young woman. She is a mother to three sons and two daughters. Her husband is employed and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.

For the past three years, Ola has been operating a beauty salon located in a good movement area downtown. Her business has a good reputation among her customers and has been a profitable project, but it also needs more financial support to cover the costs.

Ola is requesting a 2,500 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing new beauty salon supplies such as hair and body creams, new collection of hair color tubes, hair dryers, and new collection of makeup colors. This will increase the size of Ola's work and improve her family's income.
