Saadia, who appears in the picture, is a 55-year-old woman. She is a widow and a mother to three sons and two daughters. For the past four years, Saadia has run a small butcher shop located next to her house. The business has been a profitable project, but does not yet bring in enough money to cover the family's expenses and cover the cost of the business.

Saadia is requesting a loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing a new refrigerator, which she will use for preserving meat at her butcher shop, and also new butcher shop tools such as knives. This will allow Saadia to expand the scope of her work, improve her business, and increase her family's income.
