Ra'eda is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo. He is pictured next to the family's tractor.
Ra'eda is a 38-year-old woman. She is married and the mother of three sons and three daughters. Her husband is employed and gets a salary. For the past three years, Ra'eda has also been raising and selling sheep and sheep products, which has been a profitable project. However, she needs more support to cover her costs.
Ra'eda is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing more sheep and to make some repairs to the tractor. She hopes this will increase her sales and improve the family's income.
