Hayfa'a is married with seven members in her family. She is a teacher in a public school and after work she helps her husband in managing their businesses.
Hayfa'a and her husband have a small grocery store and they also raise goats which they sell and also sell milk from them. Her husband used to work as a daily worker in Israel but because of the closure it became very hard for him to get there so they started these two businesses in addition to her work as a teacher.
This is Hayfa'a’s second loan from FATEN. For her first loan she took 3,000 USD and repaid it on time. Now she needs another 3,000 USD to buy feed for the goats and some products for the grocery store.
