Islam is a 32-year-old married woman. She lives in a small village near Ramallah City with her husband and four children; one son and three daughters.

Her husband works as a construction worker and gets a low wage. This income is barely covering the family's needs, so he is raising sheep in a small coop near the family home. It is a profitable project, but needs more money to improve it.

Islam took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help Islam's husband buy more sheep and feed, and this will improve the family's business and increase the income.
