Samar is a 21-year-old wife and the mother of one daughter and one son. Her husband, Bilal, is a taxi driver in the city of Rafah in Gaza Strip. Samar's husband has been a taxi driver for five years. His car needs urgent maintenance. Samar took out a loan from FATEN as her husband can't cover the expenses all at once, and it would be easier to pay back on a monthly basis.
