Leena is a 23-year-old young woman. She is married and a mother to one son. Her husband is a nurse at a local Palestinian hospital. He gets a low salary which is not enough to cover the family's needs, so he wants to expand the scope of his work and start nursing to his patients at home.
Leena wants to share with her husband the expenses to start his new project in order to improve the family's income, which will create better living conditions for Leena and her family, so she is requesting a 3,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing needed medical equipment to start his project.
This will offer another source of income to Leena's family, which will enable them to live in better conditions.
