Halema's husband is a worker who gets a low salary that is not enough to cover all the family's needs.
Halema wants to make some improvements and repairs to her old house, but the amount of money she has isn't enough to cover the costs, so she is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to cover the costs of repairing the house such as changing windows and painting. Taking this loan will create to Halema and her family suitable home conditions and enable them to enjoy living in their house.
