Maram is a young woman from Tulkarem city. Maram is one of FATEN's borrowers. She took several loans that helped her and her husband start a vegetable and fruits store. Maram took out a loan from FATEN, in addition to the savings she could manage with her husband, to buy the small piece of land that is next to her house to start planting the seasonal vegetables she sells in the store. This will decrease the cost and bring her better returns. Maram is photographed in FATEN's office with her son.
