Azmi is a 60-year-old farmer who is married with no children. The income he gets from agriculture isn't enough to cover all of his needs, so for the past 15 years, he has been raising and selling sheep and sheep products. This project has been profitable, but still leaves him short financially.
Azmi is requesting a $3,000 loan from FATEN to help him 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. Azmi is pictured here with his herd of sheep.
