Rasmiya is the mother of one son and one daughter. She is a 43-year-old woman from Gaza City in the Gaza Strip. Her husband is an employee of the Palestinian National Authority.
Two years ago, Rasmiya opened a small clothing store in the city where she sells children's clothes. The store has many customers and the number increases over time. Since the summer has arrived, Rasmiya bought a large supply of clothes to sell. Therefore, she came to FATEN and took a $3,000 in order to pay off 3 months of her rent in advance.
Rasmiya stands next to the beautiful children's dresses in her shop.
