Shola is a 33-year-old woman. She is married and a mother to two sons and two daughters. Her husband is employed and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs and expenses.

For the past five years, Shola has had her own beauty salon and she has a good reputation among customers. It is a profitable project, but also needs more support to cover its costs.

Shola is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing new beauty salon kit, such as: hair and face and body creams, a collection of hair brushes and hair dryers. This will satisfy Shola's customers and improve the family's income.
