Samar is a 25-year-old woman from Palestine. She is a mother of one daughter. Samar's husband sells cleaning products in one of the city center streets.
Samar's husband wants to pay for a bulk purchase of cleaning products but he doesn't have enough cash to pay all the price at once, therefore Samar took out a loan from FATEN to pay for the products.
Samar is a conservative woman, therefore her husband Hamam is photographed instead.
