Boshra is a 30-year-old young woman and mother of two sons. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee who gets a low salary, but not enough to cover the family's costs. For the past five years, Boshra and her husband have also been raising and selling sheep and sheep products, which has been a profitable project.

Boshra is requesting a 2,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing more sheep and expanding and improving the herd's condition. This will increase sales and improve the family's income. Boshra is photographed in the picture.
