Jaber is a Palestinian National Authority employee and the father of one daughter, Nada, and three sons: Atef, Khaled and Fayez. Jaber has a small farm and raises goats. He started the farm three years ago to support his family as his [job] won't be enough when the children are older.
Jaber (who appears in the picture) took out a loan from FATEN to purchase new species of goats to produce stronger goats with better milk production, which will insure a better price when sold.
