Samar is a 33-year-old young woman (she is a conservative woman, so her husband is photographed instead). She is married and has two sons and two daughters. Her husband is a taxi driver making a low income; it is the only source of income the family has. Samar wants to help her husband with painting and licensing expenses for the taxi by taking out a loan of $1,000 from FATEN. When Samar gets the loan, to be repaid on a monthly basis, she will be able to share with her husband in paying for painting and licensing the taxi. This will make the taxi more efficient and her husband will work extra hours to get better income and provide better living conditions for the family.
