Abdelhadi is a 45-year-old man. He is the married father of five sons and four daughters; three of his daughters are married. Abdelhadi works as a guard in the private sector and earns a low salary that does not cover the family's needs or pay for his children's education.
For the past four years, Abdelhadi has decided to cultivate the piece of land he owns and sell the crop to increase his income and get another source of income to help him cover the cost of living.
Abdelhadi is requesting a 2000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of purchasing seedlings and necessary fertilizers. This loan will provide him a better crop, which will increase his sales and income and improve his family's conditions.
In the future, Abdelhadi is looking to expand his work in agriculture and build a greenhouse.
