Hussien is a 37-year-old man, and a father with three sons and four daughters. He is a bank employee who earns a small salary, but not enough to cover the family's expenses. For the past four years, Hussien has also been raising and selling sheep and sheep products. This has been a profitable project.
Hussien is requesting a $2,000 US loan from FATEN to help him 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. Hussien is photographed in the picture.
