Fatema is a 52-year-old woman; she is married and the mother to seven sons and one daughter. Some of her sons are employed while others are still school students. Fatema lives in a small village where the population is famous for agriculture and raising livestock .
For the past eight years, Fatema and her husband have been raising and selling sheep and sheep products. This has been a profitable project but they also need more support to cover the family's needs.
Fatema is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing more sheep and more fodder to feed the sheep that she is raising. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
Fatema is photographed with the herd among which are the sheep that she is raising.
