Mayson is a 32-year-old young woman. She is married and has three sons and one daughter. Mayson's husband works as a construction worker. Mayson and her husband have a poultry farm where they raise laying hens and broilers and sell the produce to shops in Jenin city where they live.
Mayson wants to increase the family income as her children are growing up and their educational and life expenses are growing as well. Therefore, she thought of increasing the number of hens of both types on the farm and increasing the produce. Therefore, she took out a $3,000 loan from FATEN.
