Heyam is a 37-year-old woman. She is a mother with two sons and two daughters. Her husband is a schoolteacher who gets a low salary that is not enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past three years, Heyam has been raising and selling sheep and sheep products, which has been a profitable project and helps to support her family's income.
Heyam is requesting a $3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing fodder to feed the sheep. This will increase sales and improve the family's income positively.
