Ibtesam is a 48-year-old married woman and a mother of three sons and three daughters. Her husband is employed and earns a low salary which is not enough to cover the family's needs.
Ibtesam wants to help her husband in improving the family's income by raising sheep and selling their products, which will be a profitable project.

Ibtesam is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing a number of sheep to raise and in improving the herd's condition. This will enable Ibtesam to start her project and sell sheep products to customers which will lead to the improvement of the family's income.
