Shireen is 35 years old from Gaza. She is married and has five children. She has owned a grocery store since 2009.
Shireen has asked Ryada for this loan in order to buy some goods and a refrigerator for her grocery store. She hopes that this loan will help her increase the products displayed, thus increasing the sales and improving her income.
The one who appears in the picture is Shireen's husband, since she preferred not to appear in the picture herself due to cultural manners.
