Subhiya has three sons and one daughter. Two of her sons work and support the family along with their father: one of them works in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (Israel) and the other works in the vegetables market of Jineen. The other two children are school students. Subhiya's husband, Jameel, appears in the photo.
Subhiya is a housewife. She applied for a loan from FATEN to buy needed items for the new house they moved to. The family's old house was small and now that her children are growing up she and her husband thought of moving to a bigger one.
Subhiya and her husband think of building their own house once their financial situation gets better.
