Jameela is a conservative woman, so her husband Faiyeq is photographed instead in the FATEN branch. Jameela is a 60-year-old woman and is the mother of six sons and five daughters. Her husband gets a pension, but it is not enough to cover the family's needs and expenses.
Jameela wants to purchase new home furniture so as to live in better home conditions, things such as living room furniture, dinning room furniture, etc., but since the amount of money she has isn't enough to pay, she is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing home furniture and improving the house's condition. This will offer better living conditions to the family.
