Najah is a young woman from Ramallah. Her family owns a number of storerooms that they rent out as space for others to store their goods. Najah and her brothers started a tailoring project using an old machine they had in their house.
Najah took out a loan from FATEN to buy a new machine that is faster so as to increase production, and she also wants to rent a small store so she can move the tailoring activity from the room in their house where they work now to the store she will rent.
Najah's brother appears in the picture here as she is a conservative woman.
