Mariam who appears in the picture, is a 40-year-old woman. She is married and a mother to three sons and one daughter. She works with the rest of her family in agriculture, which has been a profitable project, but the family's income isn't enough to cover their needs and pay the education costs for her children.

Mariam's daughter is studying at the university, specializing in Civil Engineering. Mariam wants to help her daughter to complete her studies by paying the university fees, so she is requesting a loan of 1,200 USD from FATEN. This will ensure a better future for her daughter and improve the family's living conditions.
