Manal is a 40-year-old, married woman and a mother to one son and two daughters. Her children's ages are between 2 and 9 years old. Manal sews clothes for her customers, and her husband is a laborer, but both of them are getting low incomes that are not enough to cover all their family's needs.
Manal and her family live in their small and old house, which needs repair and improvement to its condition. Manal is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of repairing and improving the family's house, such as painting and installing new windows. Taking this loan will allow Manal and her family to have comfortable and suitable home conditions, so they can enjoy living in their house.
