Rashad is a conservative person who prefers not to have his photo published online, so his son appears in his Kiva profile photo.

Rashad is a 59-year-old married man and the father of three sons and four daughters. He is a farmer who works cultivating olive trees and vegetables which he sells to customers. For the past ten years, he has also been raising and selling sheep and sheep products, which has been a profitable project, but not enough to cover all the costs.

Rashad is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing additional numbers of sheep in order to increase the profit. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
