Mahmoud is a 21-year-old single young man from Qalqilia who lives with his family in a very simple house. Mahmoud's father is a worker who gets a very low and unstable income. Last year, Mahmoud decided to help his family by opening a small farm to raise. It is a good business and he has the experience to manage it. Mahmoud would like to improve his farm.

Mahmoud requested a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help him to buy more sheep to raise for his farm. By taking this loan, Mahmoud will be able to increase the number of sheep and his income.
