Mayson is a 38-year-old woman; she is married and a mother to four sons and one daughter. Her husband is a laborer and gets a low wage, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past five years, Mayson has been working in a sewing workshop, sewing clothes for customers. She earns a low wage, which is not enough to cover the family's needs. Therefore, Mayson is requesting a USD loan from FATEN, to help her cover the cost of purchasing a new sewing machine. She will use the new machine to work at home in the afternoons, to provide better quality to her loyal customers. This will increase her sales and improve Mayson's income.
