Hanan O. is the mother of two daughters and four sons. Hanan's son, who is studying in the university and who helps his mother in the store, appears in the picture here, as she is a religious woman like most of Gaza Strip’s citizens.

Hanan and her husband and children, who are students, live in Rafah in Gaza Strip. Her husband owns a grocery shop. The store is the only source of income for the family; therefore, Hanan and her husband want to improve it and sell a larger variety of goods to attract more customers. That is why she is requesting a loan from FATEN.
