For the past two years, Shefa has had a small sewing workshop in her house where she sews clothes for customers. This has been a profitable project, but it needs additional support to cover the cost of new equipment.
Shefa is requesting a USD youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing a new sewing machine to provide better quality to her loyal customers. This will increase sales and improve Shefa's income, so that she will live with her family in better conditions.
