I’m Rami, deeply tied to the Land of Israel, I returned to the southern Arava region to fulfill my dream of cultivating the land. However, with the onset of the war, my army reserve duty has left my business operating with a skeleton staff. Sales have declined, and I’m seeking assistance to navigate through this challenging period.
My impact loan status:
Returning to the Arava region was a complex decision, driven by a deep sense of connection to this land and the desire to pass on this unique experience to our children. Your loan can help us not only sustain our date plantation but also preserve a way of life that holds immense meaning for us and future generations. I have been summoned for army reserve duty, resulting in my business being run by a skeleton staff. Sales have already seen a decline as I need to navigate these challenges, and my efforts to maintain business operations are being hampered by the decrease in revenue.
In the unforgiving climate and soil conditions of the southern Arava region in Israel, our date palms defy the odds and flourish. To ensure our livelihoods, my community and I have diversified our income streams by taking on additional jobs. I’ve chosen to provide oversight and management services for development projects in neighboring communities. This land is part of my identity, and I want my children to have the same experience.
I’ve recently come back to Moshav Ein Yahav with my wife and three sons after being away for 18 years. In addition to tending to our successful date plantation, I work as a freelance infrastructure engineering project manager. I also assist my parents with their Airbnb venture. Together, we are forging a vibrant life deeply connected to this friendly and welcoming community.
