Rasha is a 30-year-old mother with two sons. Her husband is an employee who earns a decent salary, but not enough to cover the family's needs. Rasha has been operating a beauty salon, which has been a profitable project, but also not enough to cover the cost of living. Because of this Rasha is requesting USD loan from FATEN to help her to cover the cost of expanding her salon by buying more equipment and beauty products. She needs this to make the salon more profitable and improve their living conditions. Rasha is photographed in the picture.
