Falasteen is a 24-year-old married woman living with her husband and three children in a small house. Currently, she has a business, weaving and selling woolens. She works at home. She started this trade four years ago, learning her technique in workshop classes. In the beginning, it was like a hobby and later, she decided to treat it as a business, besides her study. The youth loan she is currently taking out is to buy a sewing machine, which will improve her work, making it faster and increasing quality. She sells her products in shops and directly to her customers. This allows her to generate income to support her family. Falasteen is very grateful to everyone who helps her to achieve success in her business through this loan.
