Hiba is a 22-year-old married woman from Alyamon village near Jenin city. She is a mother with three children: one son and two daughters. Hiba's husband works in a grocery store as a worker, and also, the family has olive trees. They sell olive oil in Jenin city and outside Jenin.
Hiba took a loan from FATEN. This loan will help Hiba's husband to buy a private car to help him in his work like to transfer goods for the grocery store and to transfer the olive oil to the city so he can sell it there. This will help Hiba and her family to reduce the costs of transportation, and so their income will be increased.
