Lureen is a 21-year-old wife who has a one-year-old son. Lureen's husband runs a grocery store in Rafah city in Gaza Strip. Lureen and her husband moved to a new house in a residential complex that had no grocery store at the time so having the store led to good business.

Lureen has taken out a loan from Kiva partner, FATEN, to purchase a fridge for displaying items and goods to sell in the store.

Lureen is a conservative woman, as are most of Gaza Strip inhabitants, therefore her husband is shown in the photograph instead.
