Eman is a 30-year-old married young woman; she is a mother to two sons and three daughters. The family lives in the Beit Lahia district in Jabalia and lead a modest simple life.
For the past three years, Eman's husband has been selling computers, laptops and accessories, and it has been a profitable project and the only source of income for the family, but it needs more support to cover some necessary costs.
Eman is requesting a 1,500 USD Youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the cost of purchasing additional computers and a new collection of accessories. Receiving this loan will enable Eman's husband to enhance his store with new types of computers and a new collection of accessories that are requested by customers.
