Salwa is a 53-year-old married woman from Gaza City. She lives with her husband and kids in an old house in the city.
For the past four years, Salwa has been working selling women's clothes and beauty products in her house. This is the only source of income for the family.
Salwa took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help her to buy more products for her business to sell.
By taking this loan, Salwa’s sales will be increased, and also her income.
Salwa would like to open a small store for selling clothes in the future. She appears in the photo.
