Salwa's story

Salwa, who appears in the photo, is a 40-year-old who lives with her family in Tubas near Jenin city. She is the mother of two sons and one little daughter. She tries hard to raise them in the best conditions and cover all their needs. Her husband works in the public sector where he earns a low income that is barely enough to cover the basic needs of the family.

Salwa went to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to buy a new sewing machine. In her neighborhood, especially, there is no stitching. Salwa hopes that you will help her in starting a new beginning to raise her little kids in better conditions.
