Ghada is a 30-year-old woman who is married and has two sons and three daughters. Ghada lives in Gaza City in Gaza Strip, Palestine. Ghada's husband is a carpenter who makes home and office furniture in his workshop. He wants to expand his carpentry business by preparing a space to exhibit the furniture he makes. This became possible when Ghada took out a loan from Kiva partner, FATEN, to cover the expenses of preparing the space by painting it and changing the tiles.
Ghada is a religious woman, as are most of Gaza Strip's inhabitants, therefore her husband is photographed instead.
