Muhammad is a husband and the father of four daughters and three sons. He is an employee of the government and his current job is not a fulfillment of his dream of working in his own business nor an answer to big family expenses.
Over the last year Muhammad purchased fifteen sheep to raise and sell. His aim behind taking a loan from FATEN is to increase the number of sheep he has to increase the income from selling them.
Muhammad's future plan is to establish a big farm with different types of livestock and to move from raising and selling them to breeding them and selling sheep products.
