A loan of $500 helped to purchase a new sewing machine.


Shefa's story

Shefa is a 28-year-old young woman. She is married and a mother to one son and four daughters. Her husband works in a barber shop in the village where they live. His low salary is not enough to cover all of the family's needs.

For the past two years, Shefa has had a small sewing workshop in her house where she sews clothes for customers. This has been a profitable project, but it needs additional support to cover the cost of new equipment.

Shefa is requesting a USD youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing a new sewing machine to provide better quality to her loyal customers. This will increase sales and improve Shefa's income, so that she will live with her family in better conditions.
