Hedaya is a 36-year-old woman. She is a mother with three sons and one daughter, and she is a housewife.
For the past one year, Hedaya's husband has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income to the family.
Hedaya is requesting a loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing a new engine for the taxi he drives. This will increase the taxi's capacity to work extra hours and enable Hedaya's husband to take additional internal and external requests, which will improve the family's income positively.
Hedaya and her husband are photographed next to the taxi her husband has.
