Mai, 24, is from Tulkarem.

She is married.

She has owned a tailoring shop since 2012 and has 3 employees who help her.

She asked Ryada for this youth loan in order to paint her tailoring shop and buy more fabric.

She hopes that this loan will help her enlarge the scope of work and thus help her improve her family's income.

The one who appears in the picture is Mai's husband. Due to cultural manners, she couldn't take pose for a picture herself.
