Leena is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo and is pictured with his herd.

Leena is a 30-year-old young woman. She is married and is a mother to one son. Her husband is a worker and gets a low salary which is not enough to cover the family's needs.

For the past three years, Leena and her husband have also been raising and selling sheep and sheep products, which has been a profitable project but also needs more support to cover the family's needs.

Leena is requesting a 2,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing more sheep and more fodder to feed the sheep. This will increase sales and improve the family's income positively.
