Raghad is a 20-years-old young woman. Her husband has a job with a decent salary. To improve his income he works in agriculture. Raghad wants to help her husband by paying the expenses for purchasing greenhouses to use for the winter agricultural season. Since her husband's salary is not enough to pay the family's daily life expenses and to purchase greenhouses for agricultural use, Raghad needs to take a loan from FATEN to help her husband in paying for the greenhouses.
When Raghad gets the loan, she will be able to help her husband improve his agriculture and prepare to grow better crops to increase his sales and subsequently increase the family's income and offer to them better living conditions. Raghad is photographed in the picture.
