"My son loves birds. It started as a hobby and now he has a small bird shop. I want to help him fulfill his dream," Sana' says.

Sana' a mother of 10 children, all of whom are younger than 21 years old. Her son started catching birds, breeding, and selling them. Then he used his small capital to buy larger numbers of all types of birds. By the time he became well-known, he started a wholesale birds distribution business.
