Ahmad is a 20-year-old, single man. He lives, with his family, a modest life in a small village. His father gets a low pension salary, which is not enough to cover all the family's needs.

For the past three years, Ahmad has been raising and selling sheep and sheep products, which has been a profitable business, but also needs more support to cover the family's needs. Ahmad is requesting a USD 3,000 youth loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to help him cover the costs of purchasing more sheep and additional fodder to feed the sheep. This will increase sales and improve the family's income. Ahmad is photographed with the herd.
