Waa'd is a 20-year-old single young woman. She lives with her parents who work in agriculture, which is the only source of income for the family. Waa'd's parents are preparing to have a new growing season by using a greenhouse for this purpose. Waa'd is requesting a 3,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her parents cover the cost of repairing and improving the condition of the greenhouse. This will offer them a valid greenhouse to use for agriculture and the ability to prepare well for the coming agricultural season. This will offer them a better crop to sell and increase the family's income. Waa'd is photographed in the picture.
