Yasmeen is a 24-year-old married young woman and a mother to two sons and one daughter. She is a housewife and her husband is a worker who gets low salary, which is barely enough to cover the family's needs and costs.
Yasmeen lives with her family at the edge of a small village near Ramallah called Qebyah, which is near the wall. Yasmeen faces with her family many difficulties because of their near of the wall. This wall deprives them to build over their homes,so they are enforced to build beside.
Yasmeen has took a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing cement, paints and tiles to complete finish the new room they have added near their small house.
This will ensure to Yasmeen and her family better living conditions.
