Fatema is a 49-year-old woman who is married and has one son. She lives in Gaza City in Gaza Strip, Palestine. Fatema's husband is a taxi driver in the city. He couldn't cover his annual car licensing and insurance, therefore she took out a loan from Kiva partner, FATEN, to cover the expenses, which can be repaid in smaller amounts he can afford on a monthly basis.
Fatema's husband is shown in the picture here next to the taxi he drives as she is a conservative woman.
