Adlah is a 54-year-old woman. She is married and the mother of four sons and two daughters. Her husband is a retired employee who gets a pension, but it is not enough to cover the family's needs.

For the past year, Adlah and her eldest son, who is a university student, have been opening an office to provide tourism and travel services. The business is under Adlah's direct supervision, and with the support and help from her son, it has been a profitable project. However, they need more support to cover their costs.

Adlah is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of licensing the office. The license will make the office's work legal and acceptable to customers, which will help to increase customers' demand and improve the family's income.
