Sayrat is a 48-year-old woman. She is married and has three sons and four daughters. She lives in Hebron city located in Palestine. Her husband has a decent retirement salary. Sayrat wants to help improve her family's source of income by raising poultry and birds and to benefit from their products to gain money. But Sayrat hasn't enough money to pay, so she needs to take a loan of $1,500 from FATEN.
When Sayrat gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, she will have her own project that will help to improve the family income and live with her family in better life conditions. Sayrat is photographed next to the place where she is raising poultry and birds.
