Asmaa is a 28-year-old woman, a mother with one son. Her husband is a taxi driver who gets a low income, but not enough to cover all the family's expenses.

For the past three years, Asmaa and her husband have also been raising and selling sheep and sheep products, which has been a profitable project.

Asmaa is requesting a 1,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing more sheep and expanding and improving the herd's condition. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
