Rowaida is the mother of four daughters and two sons. Her husband is a construction worker. Rowaida earned her BA in Biology from the University of Jordan. She applied at many schools to teach but she has not had any luck being employed and with a big family she needs to find a job to help support her husband's taking care of the family.
Rowaida came to FATEN for a loan to equip a room in her house and to purchase items such as white-boards and chairs to start home-schooling students who need extra attention, as well as organizing private lessons.
Rowaida's brother in UAE currently helps her by sending her a small monthly allowance, which she will be able to replace once she starts teaching.
Rowaida appears in the picture above in FATEN's office.
