Wijdan, a mother of two daughters and four sons who are school students, is married and 38 years old. Wijdan's husband, who appears in the picture here instead of her as she is a conservative woman, is a taxi driver in the city of Rafah in Gaza Strip.

Wijdan's husband has been a taxi driver for 10 years, and his car needs urgent maintenance. Wijdan took out a loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the expenses that will increase his profit and the hours of work which will help him afford a big family's expenses.
