Khaled is a 25-year-old man. He works in agriculture and has a project of raising sheep and selling sheep products to increase his income. Khaled wants to expand his project by purchasing more sheep and so increase his income, but the amount of money Khaled has isn't enough to pay, so he needs to take a loan of $2,000 from FATEN. When Khaled gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will pay to purchase more sheep and sell more of their products and so increase his income and improve his life positively and live in better conditions. Khaled is photographed in the FATEN branch office.
