Alaa is a 29-year-old young man. He is married and is father to two daughters. He is employed and earns low salary, and his wife has a sewing workshop for sewing clothes for customers.

For the past five years, Alaa has had a greenhouse planting different types of seedlings. This has been a profitable project but also needs more support to cover the cost.

Alaa is requesting a 1,500 USD youth loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing seasonal seedlings to plant in the greenhouse. This will allow Alaa to produce a better crop and thus increase his sales and improve his family's income.
