Khawla is 44 years old woman and the mother of three sons. Her husband is a construction worker who earns a low salary, not enough to cover the family's needs. For the past 8 years, Khawla has been raising and selling sheep and sheep products, which has been a profitable project, but also needs more support to cover the family's needs.
Khawla is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing more sheep and improving the herd's condition. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
