Taroob's story

Taroob is a women who started her business ten years ago. She started with only 3 sheep and when she received a loan from FATEN amounting to 3000 USD, she used the loan to buy more goats/sheep. Now she has more than 20 sheep and goats, and she has established a small mini-market. She has already repaid this loan in full, and now she needs 2000 USD to buy more goats and to acquire more products for her shop.

Taroob is married, her husband is a teacher in a public school; she has four children, three of them still at school while the fourth is at the university. Her husband and eldest child help her manage the two businesses. She is very happy to have established a business of her own and to help her family to have better life.
