Insaf, who lives in Azoun village next to Qalqilia city, is the mother of one baby girl and runs a poultry farm with her husband. They breed different types of birds such as chicken and doves to sell. She and her husband started building their own house a couple of years ago. Due to a money shortage, the building has been suspended. Since they already have the farm, Insaf thought of taking a loan to improve it and buy a bigger number of poultry to increase the flock and be able to sell to villages around Azoun. This will help them continue building the house.
Insaf's husband works in a tile and marble factory besides having the farm. She tells us that Azoun is suffering from a financial crisis and their farm is the only farm in the village.
Insaf and her family appear in the picture above.
