Mayson is a 42-year-old, married woman and a mother to two sons and two daughters. She lives with her family a modest simple life in a small village near Jenin. Her husband is employed and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover all the family's needs.

Mayson's son is studying at the university. Mayson wants to help her son to complete his studies by paying the university fees, so she is requesting a USD 1,000 loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to help her son cover the university fees. This will ensure a better future for her son and improve the family's living conditions. Mayson is photographed with her husband.
