Eziyya is a 65-year-old woman from Jenin. Her husband owns a blacksmith workshop. The 15-year-old workshop is the family's source of income. The workshop produces windows, doors, water tanks, etc.
Eziyya came to FATEN and took a $2,000 loan so that her husband could purchase a new lathing machine to replace the old one and increase the productivity of the workshop.
Eziyya appears in the picture here in FATEN's office.
