Bothina is a 35-year-old single young woman. She lives with her parents and her brother, a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. Bothina raises poultry but she lacks fodder. She wants to purchase fodder in bulk to feed her poultry. She also needs to purchase a new space heater for warmth in the winter season. Bothina is requesting a $3,000 US loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing more fodder to feed the poultry and a new space heater to improve the family's living conditions. Bothina is photographed in a FATEN branch.
