Rashel is a 45-year-old married woman and a mother to three sons and one daughter. Her husband works in agriculture, planting different types of vegetables.
For the past four years, Rashel has had a cosmetics store. She is well known among her customers and has a good reputation, which makes her project a profitable one, but she needs more support to expand and make some improvements.
Rashel is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of installing shelves and purchasing a new collection of cosmetics to sell. This will allow her to expand the scope of her work, improve her business and increase the family's income. Rashel is photographed in her store.
