Madiha Taqatqa is married and her husband is the one managing their business. He owns a taxi that he operates between Bethlehem and Zatara village. He used to work inside Israel but since the separation wall, it became impossible for him to get there and also he was not able to get a permit. So he bought the taxi and works with it.
This is the family’s second loan from FATEN and they need this loan to do some maintenance on their taxi and to pay some registration fees to the Transportation Department.
Madiha and her husband appear in the photo next to their taxi.
