Kifah is a 39-year-old young woman. She is married and has three sons and four daughters. Her husband is a construction worker with decent salary. Kifah has her own business, which is an office that provides copy and printing equipment, as well as translation and document preparation services. She wants to expand and improve her business by offering a new printing machine, fax, additional furniture, etc. but the amount of money she has isn't enough, so she needs to take a loan of $1,000 from FATEN.
When Kifah gets the loan, she will be able to purchase the necessary equipment she needs to achieve these improvements and expand her office. This will will affect her work positively and let her do more high quality work and increase her income to live in better conditions. Kifah is photographed in her office.
