Sara is a 20-year-old young woman. She is married to Mahmoud and a mother to one son. Sara's husband is employed and makes a low salary, which is not enough to cover all his family's needs.
For the past three years, Sara's husband has 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.
Sara is requesting a USD Murabaha loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing more sheep. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
