Hind and her husband own a shoe store in Bethlehem city. They started working in this field 20 years ago. They have seven children who are all college or school students.
They sell women, men and kid's shoes in their store. Hind helps her husband run the store, especially in the high seasons, which are usually summer and feasts. This is not Hind's first loan from FATEN. She is one of the most committed borrowers. She is taking this loan to purchase, in cash, summer stock goods as they are expecting it to be a good season as usual.
Hind and her husband appear in their store in the picture above.
