Roweida is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her son appears in her Kiva profile photo inside the herd.
Roweida is a Palestinian woman. She is married and a mother to two sons and one daughter. Her husband is a worker who gets a small salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past five years, Roweida has had her own successful project. She has been raising and selling sheep and sheep products, which has been a profitable project, but she also needs more support to cover some necessary costs.
Roweida is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing more fodder to feed the sheep she is raising and improving the herd's condition. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
