From a small village near Nablus called Tubas, Ibtisam is a 40-year-old married mother of two sons and one daughter. Her husband has worked as a farmer for many years, but his income is not stable due to variations in crop quality and market demand. He therefore opened a restaurant three years ago to supplement his income, and he now has many loyal customers.

Ibtisam requested a USD loan from FATEN to help her husband buy more food for his restaurant. This loan will enable Ibtisam to develop his business and increase his productivity.

Ibtisam is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in the photo shown working in his restaurant.
