Fadwa is a 44-year-old woman. She is married and a mother to six sons and three daughters. Her husband is employed and gets a salary, but not enough to cover the family's needs.
Fadwa works in agriculture. She plants seasonal crops to sell, which has been a profitable project, but she needs more support to cover the costs.
Fadwa is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing a water tank to irrigate the crops. This will increase the size of the crop and so increase sales and improve the family's income.
