Salam is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in the photo while he was working in his grocery store.

Salam is a 20-year-old married woman from a small village near Nablus city. She lives with her husband in a simple home. Salam's husband owns a small grocery store in the village, where he sells basic goods like rice, sugar and dairy milk. It is a very profitable project, but needs a lot of improvement. This store has been opened since one year ago.

Salam took a $1,500 USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help her husband to expand his grocery store and buy more products to resell. This will improve his business and increase the family income.
