Asmaah's story

Asmaah, age 41, is married to a secretary at a medical insurance office and has five children, all of whom are at university.

Asmaah cooks traditional Arab food to order in the village of Tsur Baher in East Jerusalem, and she has a reputation for quality. She provides meals and pastries to local school teachers, who eat with her twice weekly, and for festive meals on demand.

She seeks to expand her business by renting a kitchen, to help fund her children’s education. She has been approached by managers of local banqueting venues, so she is assured of demand.

To achieve her goal for herself and for her family, she seeks to borrow a total of 18,000 ILS, in order to pay two months' rent on a kitchen and to purchase an oven (5,000 ILS) and refrigerator (9,000 ILS).
