Haya is 33 years old; she lives in Nablus at Askar camp, a Palestinian refugee camp. It is located on the outskirts of the West Bank city of Nablus and was established in 1950 on 209 dunums of land. In 1960 the camp was expanded onto a further 90 dumums. She lives with her husband and her three children in the family house. She sells all kind of vegetables and fruits in her vegetable shop which she opened one year ago. This business helped the family income, because her husband works in a public institution which generally pays low salaries, and they are a big family and need to provide for their kids.
Haya asked Ryada for this loan to purchase more vegetables and fruits because she had shortage in her capital and needs to increase her stock. She is ready to work even harder, make sacrifices and push every once in a while to achieve her goal and become a successful entrepreneur. Her dream is to be well-know in the city this is why she tries to give the best service for her clients.
Haya is very grateful to everyone who helps her to achieve success in her business with this loan.
