Raja' is 34 years old; she lives in a small house in Gaza with her husband and four children. All of her children attend the public primary school.
For the past four years, Raja' has run a food market, a rented market, and she hopes in the future to buy a grocery. This business has helped the family's income, especially since her husband works in a public institution and earns a low salary, and especially when they are big family and need to ensure their children's needs are met.
Raja' sells different kinds of food items, such as soft drinks, cookies and similar things. She asked Ryada for this loan to buy furniture and shelves for her grocery store.
Raja' is very grateful to everyone who helps her to achieve success in her business with this loan.
