Nawal is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her son appears in the photo in front of their supermarket.

Nawal is a 50-year-old married woman from Rafah city. She lives with her husband and son in a small house in the city. Her son is still a student in the university. Nawal and her husband own a small supermarket in a crowded area in Rafah. It is very profitable but because of high family expenses, they can't improve their business.

Nawal took a loan from FATEN. This loan will help her to buy more products that customers frequently order. This will improve the supermarket's conditions and also increase their income.
