Asmaa is a 41-year-old woman. She is a mother of two sons and two daughters. Her husband is a worker who earns an income, but not enough to cover the family's expenses. For the past five years, Asmaa has been raising and selling laying hens and eggs, which has been a profitable project.
Asmaa is requesting a loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing a bulk of laying hens and expanding and improving the coop's condition. This will increase sales and improve the family's income. Asmaa and her husband Mahmoud appear in her Kiva profile photo.
