Janat's story

Janat is a 45-year-old married woman from Bethlehem City, West Bank. She lives with her family in a small, old house. She is the only breadwinner for her family and they depend on her for support.

Janat has a small souvenir workshop in the city. It is a good business and provides her with a good income, but the economic situation in Bethlehem is bad. Because of conflict, tourists has decreased. Janat took a loan from Palestine for Credit & Development to fund the purchase of olive wood and new tools for the manufacturing of souvenirs. She hopes that this new inventory will enable her to increase her sales and customers, and eventually save enough income to expand her business.
