Rasha is a conservative woman, so her husband Ashraf is pictured in the photograph instead. Rasha is a 27-year-old woman. She is married with two sons and one daughter. Rasha's husband is employed, but his salary is not enough to cover all the family's needs and expenses. Rasha is requesting a youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the expense of adding another room to their house and improving the family's home condition. This will increase the size of the house and offer the family better living conditions.
