Kamela and her son, Issam, own a small piece of land they use to plant vegetables, especially eggplant and tomatoes. They started planting the land two years ago in order to increase their income. Since Issam is an employee and getting married, but his salary is not enough to cover daily expenses, they thought of planting the land to increase their income.

Kamila appears in the photo taking care of her plants.
