Abdel Hameed
Abdel Hameed is a 48-year-old married man from Rafah city. He is the father of five sons.

For the past five years, Abdel has been working on his own farm where he raises chickens and sells their meat in the local market. It is a good business but somehow risky due to the losses from the weather and disease.

Abdel would like to improve his business, so he took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help him to buy heaters for his farm. This is very important to protect the chickens from the cold weather. By taking this loan, Abdel will be able to increase his productivity and also his income. Abdel appears in the photo on his farm.
