Estishhad, age 24, is a young married woman with two sons. He is a Palestinian National Authority employee, and although he earns a decent salary, it is not enough to pay for much more than covering his family's basic expenses.
Estishhad is in need of new home furniture items to replace her old furniture. She hopes to purchase new bedroom furniture for her children, living room chairs, and a television. To buy these, she needs to request a loan in the amount of $2,000 from FATEN. Receiving this loan will enable Estishhad to offer to her family basic home furniture and appliances in good condition and to be able to provide them with better and more comfortable living conditions.
