Etezaz's story

Etezaz is a wonderful hardworking woman who tries her utmost to provide her family with a decent life and to rely on herself. She is a 49-year-old mother of two sons and three daughters, living in Jericho, West Bank.

She works in processing food and selling it to customers by cutting, milling, and processing it to be ready for cooking. It's the only source of income for her. She turned to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN to request a loan to buy a machine for cutting food and a machine for milling it. This will increase her production and enhance her income.
