Linda, a 34-year-old mother of one son and two daughters, is married to a carpenter who wants to improve the quality of his work by purchasing a new carpentry kit. Linda is therefore requesting a loan of $1,500 from FATEN for this purpose. The kit will enable her husband to more effectively compete with others and secure extra work to increase his income and better provide for his family.

Linda is a conservative woman, so her husband is photographed instead in his carpentry shop.
