Asmaa is a 25-year-old young woman. She is married and a mother to one son and one daughter. Her husband is a worker who earns a low income, which is not enough to cover all the family's needs.
For the past four years, Asmaa has had a small sewing workshop in her house to sew clothes for customers. It has been a profitable project, but she needs more support to cover necessary costs and improve her project.
Asmaa 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 Asmaa's income.
