Rana is a 28-year-old young woman who is married and has three sons. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. Rana works in agriculture to share life expenses with her husband. She wants to prepare for the coming season by purchasing seedlings, but the amount of money she has isn't enough to pay so she needs to take a loan of $1,000. When Rana takes her FATEN loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, she will purchase seedlings and prepare for the coming season. That will lead to a good season, increase her income and live in better conditions with her family.
