Safaa is a 29-year-old young woman. She is married and has one son and three daughters. Safaa lives in Dora village in Hebron, which is located in Palestine. Her husband works in the area behind the borders.
Safaa has her own project raising poultry and selling its products. She wants to expand and buy more poultry but she doesn't have enough money, so she needs to take a loan of JOD 700 from FATEN.
When Safaa gets her FATEN loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, she will be able to buy more poultry and sell more of its products. This will generate more income, which will help her family to have better living conditions. Safaa is photographed in FATEN's branch.
