Rayek is a 40-year-old man; he is married and a father to one son and two daughters. He is a taxi driver and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past seven years, Rayek has also been raising and selling sheep and sheep products, which has been a profitable project, but also needs more support to cover the costs.
Rayek is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing more sheep and improving the herd's condition. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
