Omar is a 54-year-old married man with three sons and four daughters. He is an employee with a decent salary, but he also has a farm raising sheep. He benefits from selling sheep products to increase his income and offer better living conditions to his family. Because his farm is successful, Omar wants to expand by purchasing more sheep and fodder. He needs a loan from FATEN to help him with the amount of money he has. Having this loan will help Omar increase his sales from sheep products, increase his income, and provide better living conditions to his family. Omar is photographed in the picture.
