Ibtesam's story

.,btesam is a 35-year-old Palestinian married woman from Gaza and a mother of five kids. Her husband is a farmer.

Ibtesam has three years of experience in the field of storing and selling leafy plants so she started a business out of it. She faces many hardships regarding this business. But Ibtesam wants to keep going with the business and buy more fresh vegetables and leafy plants but she lacks the financial ability so, she decided to ask for a 600 JOD loan to do so.

Ibtesam hopes she will be able to keep supporting her family and have a secondary stable salary. She is looking forward to expanding her business and buyjng a new house in the near future.
