Fatema is a 47-year-old married woman and a mother of six sons. Her husband is a worker who earns a low salary, which is barely enough to cover the family's needs.
Fatema wants to live with her family in better conditions, so she is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing construction supplies such as wood, cement and iron to complete building the family's new house. Taking this loan will speed the process of completing their new house and enable Fatema and her family to enjoy living in their new house soon.
