Khawlah is a 38-year-old married woman from Jenin city. She is a mother of two boys and six daughters: all of them are under 18 years old. Khawlah's husband is an electric worker. He earns a good income but it is not stable. Khawlah works in a sewing workshop to help her husband with part of the family expenses. Khawlah has been working in this field for eight years and she has very good experience.
Khawlah took out a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help her to buy a new sewing machine because the one she has is very old. This will improve the quality of her work and also her income will increase.
