Ra'ed is a 42-year-old man who is married and has three sons and two daughters. He has a project raising broilers and laying hens and benefits from selling their products. Ra'ed wants to expand his project by purchasing more broilers and laying hens, but the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay, so he needs to take a loan of $1,100 from FATEN. When Ra'ed gets the loan, he will be able to purchase more broilers and laying hens and increase his sales from its products. This will increase his income and enable him to provide better living conditions for his family. Ra'ed is photographed in the picture.
