A loan helped to buy seeds and fertilizers for the fertilization process and to plow the land.


Khaled's story

Khaled is 29, married, and has three children; his wife is a housewife. He is living with his parents in the same house in a small village. He is sharing with his father a small agricultural land of about 11 carats. He and his father help each other with land cultivation. He wakes up early and goes to the land for plowing; he and his father take care of this land because it's the only source of family income, and it has been their work for a long time.

He is cultivating the land with aromatic plants like Artemisia and Mint. He earns money from selling the crops to the factories to sell packaged.
He is requesting a loan to buy seeds and fertilizers for the fertilization process and for plowing the land. He will sell the crop to factories; he will use the money to help his father in his siblings' marriage expenses, and to pay for his children’s education fees.
