Mohammad is a 26-year-old young man. Married with one son, he has a project of raising poultry and benefiting from selling their products. Mohammad wants to purchase fodder and medicine for his poultry and also wants to expand the coop size, but the money Mohammad has isn't enough to pay for theses expenses, so he needs to take a loan in the amount of $2,000 from FATEN.
When Mohammad gets the loan, that is repaid on a monthly basis, he will be able to purchase the necessary living needs for the poultry such as fodder and medicine and also to make the needed expansion for the coop. This will increase the productivity of his poultry and Mohammad will sell more poultry products and so increase the income he gets to have better living conditions. Mohammad is photographed here.
