Suhad is a Palestinian woman from Rafah City in Gaza Strip. She is married and the mother of one daughter and three sons. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee. The family can't afford to purchase all the items they need for their house, so they do it every time they have the chance and money. Suhad took out a loan from FATEN to purchase a computer for her children and a cooker as the one she has is very basic and becoming very old.

Suhad's husband appears in the photo as she is a conservative woman.
