Ghada is a 31-year-old mother of three sons and one daughter. For the past year, Ghada's husband has been selling fruits and vegetables on a small cart in the local market. This is the only source of income for the family. This income is not stable because fruits and vegetables are seasonal and sometimes have to be imported from outside Palestine.
Ghada took a USD Murabaha loan from FATEN. This loan will help her husband to buy more seasonal fruits and vegetables to resell in the local market.
