Maha is a 49-year-old, Palestinian woman, from a small village called Arabah, near Jenin City. She has worked in a clothing store for the past few years and she loves her job. But, Maha would like to open her own clothing store in her area. She would like to sell clothes for different targets, like women and children.
Maha took out a USD loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to help her open her own clothing store. This will increase Maha's income. Maha is photographed in her clothing store.
