Marah is a 22-year-old young woman; she is married and her husband works in vegetable sales and has a low income. Marah wants to help her husband by purchasing bulk vegetables for sale to increase his collection and increase his income, but the amount of money she has isn't enough to pay, so she needs to take a loan of $1,500 from FATEN. When Marah gets the loan, she will be able to help her husband and purchase bulk vegetables, so he will be able to compete with others and improve his sales and increase his income. This will enable him to provide better living conditions for the family. Marah is photographed in the picture.
