Walaa is a young woman who is 22 years old. She is married and has no children yet. Her husband is employed and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover all their costs.

For the past six months, Walaa has run a beauty salon. It has been a profitable project, but it also needs more support to cover costs.

Walaa is requesting a 2,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing new beauty salon kit and a collection of new accessories, such as hair and body creams, a number of hair dryers, and different types of hair brushes. This will give Walaa the necessary kit for her work in the salon, which will improve her work quality and increase her income.
