Salma’s husband works in the across the border (in Israel) and also owns a small grocery store. he wants to have a decent job and more returns out of the store, therefore his wife Salma came to FATEN ask for this help purchasing goods and basic items to sell in the store.

Salma will be running the store till it prospers and her husband would be able to quit his job across the border (in Israel).

The store is located in a rural area where they have more chances to attract a good number of clients.
