Areen is a 21-year-old married woman and the mother to one daughter. She is a housewife and her husband is a worker who earns a small salary, which is barely enough to cover the family's needs.

Areen is requesting a 1,000 USD Youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing a new refrigerator and stove for her house. Taking this loan will offer to Areen and her family suitable home appliances so they can enjoy living in their house.
