Iman is a young woman from Tulkarem. She works in a tailoring workshop, and her husband works in the land on the other side of the wall.
Iman and her husband saved money from their work and started a small grocery store and are starting a small farm in their backyard in Tulkarem. They have a couple of goats. They want to expand their herd and start producing dairy products as Iman's work is seasonal and her husband's work is not stable.
Iman, who appears in the picture above, took a loan from FATEN to purchase a vehicle to distribute the dairy products they produce and neighboring houses' orders from the supermarket.
