Sonia is a 33-year-old married woman. She lives in a small village near Jinen with her husband and four children; two sons and two daughters. All of them are under 10 years old. Sonia's husband is a worker with a very low wage which is not enough to cover all the family needs so Sonia works as an employee to help her husband with part of the family expenses. Her work is far from where she lives. It is not easy for her to go everyday but she must work to help her husband.
Sonia took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help her to buy some necessary furniture especially living room chairs. This will improve the family's home conditions. Sonia would like to take another loan in the future to buy all the necessary furniture and home appliances needed.
