Saja is a 21-year-old young married woman with one son and one daughter. Saja is a housewife and her husband is a worker who earns a small salary, which is hardly enough to cover all costs.
Saja wants to support her husband in improving their family's living conditions by speeding up the process of finishing their new house, so she is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing and installing new tiles in their new house. Taking this loan will allow Saja and her family to move to into their new house soon and improve their living conditions.
