Ashraf is a 36-year-old man. He is a father with three sons and two daughters; some of them are school students. Ashraf works as a driver in the Palestinian Ministry of Civil Affairs and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's living expenses and education costs. For the past one year, Ashraf has also been raising and selling sheep and sheep products, which has been a profitable project.
Ashraf is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing more sheep and fodder and expanding and improving the herd's condition. This will increase sales and improve the family's income positively. Ashraf is photographed in the picture.
