Lubna is a 35-year-old woman, who is married and a mother to three sons. Her husband is a school teacher who gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover all the family's needs.
For the past three years, Lubna has been operating a school food stall, which has been a profitable project but needs more support to cover its costs. Lubna is requesting a USD loan from FATEN, to pay the rent of the food stall. This will provide consistency in her work, by enabling her to continue working effectively in the same place. That will increase her sales and improve her income, which will enable Lubna to create better living conditions for her family. Lubna's photo was taken in the place of her food stall.
