Irit’s Jachnun

For the past 15 years, our business has been specializing in traditional Yemeni cuisine, particularly “Jacnun.” We prepare our food at the beginning of each week and sell it on Saturdays using a food cart at the entrance to the Kibbutz. However, on October 7th, we were evacuated from our home on Moshav Yachini, and we have not been able to return since. We are eager to revive our business and resume operations, hoping to return to our home soon.

Micro lending, Macro Impact

Due to the recent security threats and evacuation from our home in Moshav Yachini, we have been unable to operate our business of selling Yemeni cuisine, specifically “Jacnun.” Fortunately, on October 7th, we did not deploy our food cart due to Simchat Torah celebrations, potentially saving us from harm as terrorists targeted the area we typically operate. Currently residing in a temporary location, we cannot resume our operations and sell our products. With the assistance of a loan, we aim to restart our business by utilizing our food cart to sell our products in different locations, ensuring our ability to restore our livelihood once we return to the Yachini area.
