Eman is a 26-year-old married young woman with no children yet. Eman and her husband are nurses at a local hospital, and both are getting low salaries which are not enough to cover all their needs.
Eman has a problem in her house. Especially in the winter season, the house ceiling is leaking water and this has led to damage to the house and its furniture. Eman wants to repair the leaking water problem at her house especially now that it is the winter season, so she is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing the necessary materials and hiring workers. Taking this loan will fix their house's ceiling leaks and offer to Eman and her husband healthy and suitable home conditions, so they can enjoy living in their house.
