Hana is a 32-year-old, married woman from Gaza. She has three children: one son and two daughters.
The only income the family has is from the taxi. Hana's husband is a taxi driver. This taxi has been working for the past six years and now it needs a lot of repairing, like painting and maintenance. These repairs cost a lot and the family can't afford them all at one time.
Hana took a USD 1,000 loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN). This loan will help the family to renew the taxi and improve its condition. Hana appears in the photo.
