Fatmeh is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online so her husband appears in the photo.
Fatmeh is a 25-year-old married woman from Jabalia city. She is a mother of one son and three daughters. Her husband (pictured) is an employee in a local company and this is the only source of income for the family. He gets a very low wage which is not enough to cover all of the family's needs. Fatmeh and her husband would like to improve the family's living conditions but they do not have enough money for that, so Fatmeh took a loan from FATEN. This loan will help her to buy a solar system for heating water. The system will provide the family with hot water using clean and cheap power which will improve the family's living conditions.
