Etaf is a 32 years old married woman. She lives with his husband and four children; two sons and and two daughters. Her husband is a worker with a very low wage. Etaf supports her family by sewing cloths.
For the past 10 years, Etaf has had a sewing workshop. She sells clothes for her customers, which has been a profitable project, but it does not bring in enough money to cover the family's expenses and cover the cost of work.
Etaf is requesting a loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing an additional sewing machine to provide better quality to her loyal customers. This will increase sales and improve Etaf's income.
