Lina's story

Lina is a 37-year-old married woman from Bethlehem city. She lives in a very simple house with her husband and six kids, three sons and three daughters. All of them attend school.

For the past ten years, her husband has been working in his workshop, where they make olive wood souvenirs. It is a very profitable business, but the raw materials are very expensive. Lina make sewing products at her home and sells them to the local stores in the city.

Lina would like to improve her business by buying another sewing machine, so she took a USD loan from FATEN.

This loan will help her buy a new sewing machine for her workshop, allowing her to increase her productivity, and also her income.
