Arwa is married and she has three sons aged 33, 30, and 24 . The younger two work as daily-paid workers in Israel; the eldest is responsible for helping his mother in managing the farm and their new shop. The fourth is a girl aged 19, studying at the university. Her husband is working in the USA.

For 5 years, Arwa and her eldest boy, Hamza, have had a chicken farm where they raise chickens to sell wholesale. Now they want to take out a loan from FATEN amounting to 2000 USD to rent and decorate a new shop, in addition to buying some equipment so they can sell their chickens directly to customers with more profit.

Arwa appears in the picture at the FATEN office in Ramallah.
