A loan helped to increase the number of sheep, to produce more milk and cheese.

Almaza's story

Almaza is 45 years old. She lives with her family in a small, humble house in a village near Ramallah city. This area is famous for raising sheep. Many families depend on this work to cover all family expenses.

Almaza went to Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to request a loan. This loan enables her to increase the number of her sheep to produce more milk and cheese.

Almaza hopes to expand her family business and distribute her products in other cites.
