Rasha is a 29-year-old young woman and is married with four daughters. Her husband works in furniture making with a low income which is not enough to cover the family's needs.

Rasha wants to improve the family's income and share the expenses of life with her husband by having her own project, which is a beauty salon. She is requesting a 1,500 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing new beauty salon equipment such as hair dryers, a collection of hair brushes, hair and body creams, etc. This will improve her work and increase the family's income.

Rasha is a conservative woman, so her husband Ramzi is photographed instead.
