Khitam is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in the photo.
Khitam is a 36-year-old married woman from the city of Jabalia. She is the mother of two sons and two daughters. Her husband works as an employee in the public sector where he gets a low income. He also has a workshop for making furniture. It is a good business and helps them to pay for part of the family's expenses.
Khitam took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help her to buy textile for making furniture. With this loan, the workshop productivity will increase and so will the family income.
