Sana is a 42-year-old married woman. She is a mother with seven children: five sons and two daughters. Sana and her husband and children live in a humble house in a small village called Attel near Tulkarm city. Sana's husband is a worker in a bakery in the city. He earns a low income which is not enough to cover all the expenses for the family's needs.
Sana and her husband would like to complete their new home and live in it, but they do not have enough liquidity to pay the costs of completing it. Sana took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help Sana to purchase construction materials to complete the family's new home so they can enjoy living in a comfortable place.
