Sumaya is a 35-year-old married woman from Rafah. She is a mother of seven children. She works as an employee in the public sector where she earns a low income.
She would like to have another source of income, so she wants to buy a rickshaw and rent it out to a worker who wants to use it to earn an income. Sumaya took a loan from FATEN to buy a new rickshaw so she can rent it out.
By taking this loan, Sumaya will be able to have another source of income for the family.
