Basema is a 46-year-old woman. She is married and has three sons and one daughter. Basema lives in Gaza city in Palestine. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee and a taxi driver in order to secure a better income for his family. As his taxi needs urgent maintenance and Basema's husband can't cover the expenses right now, Basema took out a loan of $2,000 from FATEN so her husband can pay for the necessary repairs for the taxi.

Basema is a conservative woman, therefore her husband is photographed in the picture here.
