Fatheya R. is a 53-year-old wife and the mother of two daughters and two sons. Her husband is a retired teacher who owns land in the Jenin area where he grows seasonal fruits and vegetables.
Fatheya wants to help her husband work the land and improve its produce. Therefore, she took a loan from FATEN to purchase a greenhouse to grow more vegetables and fruits. Fatheya says that this will increase their income and improve the family's situation.
Fatheya likes taking care of plants, as is apparent from the background of the picture, where she stands at her front yard.
