Nojod is a 38-year-old woman who is married and a mother to two sons and two daughters. Her husband is a blacksmith, but the income he earns isn't enough to cover the family's needs. For the past six years, Nojod has been raising and selling poultry, which has been a profitable project, but she also needs more support to cover the costs. Nojod wants to purchase new pan feeding and nipple drinking systems, but the amount of money she has isn't enough to pay, so she is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN. When Nojod gets the loan, she will be able to pay for purchasing new pan feeding and nipple drinking systems for the poultry she is raising. In this way she will improve her project and increase her income to provide better living conditions for the family. Nojod is photographed in the place where she is raising poultry.
