Hiba is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her brother appears in the photo.

Hiba is a 23-year-old single woman from a small village near Ramallah. She lives with her family. Hiba and her brother would like to open a small chicken farm to sell meat. It is a profitable project.

Hiba took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help her to start her own project by buying all the necessary tools and feed for the chicken farm. This project will earn a good income and improve the family's living conditions.

Hiba and her brother dream to take a bigger loan in the future and expand their farm.
