Ghada is a housewife and mother from Rafah city in Gaza Strip. She has four sons and one daughter.
Ghada’s husband, Hamed, is a Palestinian National Authority employee and a taxi driver. The salary he receives forced him to find another job to be able to raise the five children he has, especially with the hard living conditions in Gaza Strip. The taxi business is helping the family to cover their expenses and live a better life.
Ghada is a loyal client of FATEN, having taken three previous loans. She is taking a $3,000 loan from FATEN as her husband needs to perform maintenance on his taxi as it's been in service for seven years now and needs a few modifications and more frequent maintenance.
