Rab'a is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in the photo.
Rab'a is a 59-year-old married woman from a small village near Tulkarm city. She is a mother for seven sons and four daughters. Rab'a's husband works as a worker with a very low and unstable wage. He also works as a farmer on the family land, where they plant seasonal fruits and vegetables and sell them in the local market. He owns a small tractor he uses in his land. It is a very old one and needs some maintenance.
Rab'a took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help her husband to pay the maintenance costs for his tractor. By taking this loan, Rab'a's husband will be able to do his farming job using his tractor.
