Amal is a 31-year-old woman. She is married with two sons and two daughters. Her husband is a worker with a decent salary, but not enough to cover the family's needs, so he also works in agriculture to increase his income.
Amal is requesting a loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing greenhouses for agricultural use during the winter season. This will help provide a better crop and increase sales, improving the family's income. Amal is pictured in the photograph.
