Fadwa is a 25-year-old woman who owns a coffee shop in the city of Jenin- Palestine. Fadwa wants to add different kinds of coffee to the menu of the coffee shop. Therefore, she took out a loan from FATEN to purchase an advanced coffee maker.

Fadwa's brother is a Palestinian National Authority employee and her father works in a chicken store. The three of them together take care of the household expenses.

Fadwa, who is photographed here, tries to attract more clients as competition in restaurants and coffee shops is high in Jenin.
