Najah is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in the photo.
Najah is a 34-year-old married woman from Attel village near Tulkarm city. She is a mother for six sons and three daughters. Najah's husband is a construction worker. He takes a low and unstable income because the demand decreases in the winter. He also has a small gifts shop where he sells some stationary and other cosmetics products. Najah and her husband works in their store. It is a good business and earns a good income, but still needs some improvements.
Najah took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help her and her husband buy more products for their gifts store to resell. This will increase their sales and income.
