Malak is an 18-year-old woman. She is married and has no children yet.

For the past three years, Malak's husband has had a stall that sells fruits and vegetables. This has been a profitable project, but he also needs more support to cover his costs.

Malak is requesting a 1,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing a new, seasonal collection of fruits and vegetables that customers often request and buy. This will increase his sales and improve his family's income.

Malak and her husband are photographed next to their stall.
