A loan of $2,000 helped to purchase bulk chickpeas and pod peas to make " Homos and Fool modamas" to sell to customers.


Ibtehal's story

Ibtehal is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo, photographed in his restaurant.

Ibtehal is 27 years old and a mother of one son and one daughter. Her husband is a school employee who earns a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs. For the past three years, Ibtehal's husband has also been operating a restaurant, selling "Homos and Fool modamas", a Palestinian traditional food, which has been a profitable project.

Ibtehal is requesting a 2,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing bulk chickpeas and pod peas to make "Homos and Fool modamas" to sell to customers. This will cover the increasing demands from customers for this type of food, increase sales and improve the family's income.
