Falasten is a 34-year-old young woman. She is married and the mother of four sons. Her husband is a worker with a low salary, not enough to cover the family's costs. Falasten's husband works also in agriculture, which is a profitable project.
Falasten is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband complete the price of purchasing a greenhouse and tractor for agricultural use. This will improve Falasten's husband's work in agriculture and will help him to have a better crop and so increase sales and increase the family's income.
Falasten is photographed with her son on the piece of land the family owns.
