Mariam is a 59-year-old woman. She is divorced and the mother of one daughter, who lives with her.
Mariam is a bank employee and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover her needs. She wants to improve her living conditions at home, so she is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to complete the price of purchasing new living room furniture. This will enable Mariam and her daughter to enjoy living in their house. Mariam, herself, appears in the picture.
