Wisaf, who appears in the picture with her husband, is a 44-year-old woman. She is a mother of two sons and five daughters who are are between 22 and 15 years old. Wisaf's husband is a worker who earns a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's need.
Currently, Wisaf is repairing and renovating her house. But due to a money shortage, some renovations have been stopped for awhile. So she is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to continue her home's renovations. First of all, she will paint her house and then install new windows. The loan she is taking out will be dedicated to covering the cost of painting and hiring workers to install new windows to her house, which will offer suitable home conditions to Wisaf and her family.
