Salha is a 24-year-old married woman from a small village near Ramallah city. She lives with her husband in a very simple house. Salha's husband works at a carpentry workshop he has owned for four years. It is a good job but still needs a lot of improvements like more machines.
Salha took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help her husband to buy a special machine for his carpentry workshop. This will enable him to produce wood boards of a better quality. This will increase the demand for his products and also his income will increase.
