Nariman lives in a refugee camp near Ramallah City. Nariman's husband runs a grocery store in the refugee camp. Since refugee camps have large populations, such businesses bring good income to families. Nariman took out a loan from FATEN as her husband wants to enrich the store by adding to the items he sells.
Nariman has five sons and three daughters. Nariman's brother appears in the picture here as she is a conservative woman and refused to post her picture on the web.
