Leena is a 33 years old married woman who wants a child. Leena and her husband's jobs provide decent salaries.
She wants to undergo a medical surgery in hopes it will enable her to get pregnant soon. She and her husband don't have the money needed to pay for the surgery, so she is asking for a loan of $3,000 from FATEN. If she gets the loan, it will be repaid on a monthly basis.
Leena feels the surgery is her best hope to become pregnant and have a baby. This will increase her self-confidence and let her live a better life.
