Ikhlas is a 22-year-old, married woman. She is a mother for one son, who is one year old. Ikhlas is conservative, so her husband is shown in the photo.

Ikhlas’s husband is working as a photographer in the summer. Because this work is classified as a seasonal work, his salary is not enough to cover all the family expenses. So that Ikhlas and her husband have additional work, in the past two years Iklas’s husband has also been raising and selling chicks, which has been a profitable business, but also needs more support to cover business development costs.

Ikhlas is requesting a USD 3,000 loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing more chicks and expanding and improving the flock's condition. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
