Ramzeyeh is a 59-year-old married woman from Jenin City. She lives in a small house in the city with her husband and five children: four sons and one daughter. Ramzeyeh's husband is a worker with a very low wage. For the past eight years, Ramzeyeh has had a store for selling herbal creams and medicines. She buys these products from a local factory. It is a profitable project but the costs of these products are very high.
Ramzeyeh requested a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help her to improve her store by adding more shelves and making some decorations to make the store more attractive for the clients. This will increase the store productivity and also her income.
