Sabrine Muhammad R. and her husband, Asaad, own a grocery store in Jabalia refugee camp in Gaza Strip. They have four sons and one daughter who are school students and under 18. Sabrine shares working in the store with her husband and sometimes their children help when they don't have homework.
Sabrine took a $1,500 loan from FATEN to purchase a display fridge for the frozen goods they sell and also to purchase more goods as people consume more food during the holy month of Ramadan.
Sabrine's husband appears in the photo as Sabrine doesn't like to be photographed.
