Hanan's story

Hanan is a conservative woman. (Her husband is seen in photo.)

Hanan, born in 1983, is married and she lives in Irbid camp-Jordan. Her husband is a school driver which provides a low amount of income. He also sells cotton candy and ice cream. In a year doing this work he has found that it is a profitable business. But because of wear and tear, the ice cream and cotton candy are damaged. Hanan and her husband don't have enough money to purchase new ones.

Hanan took a loan before to purchase a machine for making cotton candy and now is seeking a youth loan to buy a new ice cream machine.
