Nasra is a 34-year-old married woman from a small village near Qalqilia. She is a mother of two young sons and one daughter. Nasra is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online so her husband appears in the photo. Her husband has a small sewing workshop that he has owned for five years.
Nasra obtained a loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN). This loan will help her husband buy a new sewing machine for his workshop which will increase his productivity and ability to complete more orders. By taking this loan, the family income and living conditions will be improved.
