Hanan and her husband Naser raise honey bees. Hanan is a FATEN customer; she has had two previous loans and repaid them on time. Hanan and her husband want to increase the honey the bees produce. They bought more bees and requested a loan from FATEN to purchase capped brood [pupae that have been capped over in cells].
Hanan has two sons and two daughters: the oldest is 18 years old and the youngest is two years old. Hanan's husband appears in the photo as Hanan is a conservative woman.
