Mervat is 34 years old and a mother with two sons and four daughters. Her husband is a security employee at a local college who earns a decent salary, but not enough to cover the family's needs. For the past 15 years, Mervat's husband has also been raising and selling sheep and sheep products, which has been a profitable project.

Mervat is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing more sheep and expanding and improving the herd's condition. This will increase sales and improve the family's income. Mervat is a conservative woman, so her husband is photographed instead in the picture.
