Leila, 45 years old, is married and the mother of two sons and four daughters. Her husband is a Ministry of Education employee with a decent salary which is not enough to cover the family's needs. Leila has a cultural center where she gives private lessons to students. She wants to improve her center by purchasing new computers for the students who come to the center to use to improve their skills. Leila doesn't have enough money to pay for the computers, so she is requesting a $3,000 US loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing new computers and improving the center. This will increase Leila's income and improve the family's living conditions. Leila is a conservative woman, so her husband Anwar is photographed instead in her cultural center.
