Etimad's story

Etimad is a housewife with two children whom she takes care of in addition to her household duties. She is from a small village called Ni'leen in Ramallah district.

Etimad's husband is a construction worker in the Occupied Palestine Territories (Israel). Due to the non-stable work situation there, Etimad's husband had to borrow money from relatives and friends. Therefore she has asked for a loan from FATEN to pay off her husband's debts.

Etimad appears in the picture above.
