Myassar is a 58-year-old mother of two daughters and four sons. Two of her sons work in bakery in Jenin, while the other two sons work on the small farm the family owns. On this farm they raise dairy cows and sell the milk to families and shops in the area.
Myassar came to FATEN and took out a loan to purchase an additional cow to the ones they have in order to increase the milk production and sales.
