Yusra S. is a 52-year-old woman from Gaza City in Gaza Strip. Yusra and her son, Muhammad, and daughter, Fatima, started their disk jockey business two years ago. Yusra's four daughters and her son are college students, so she decided to start her own business to help her husband afford their household expenses.

Yusra bought the DJ equipment to provide music to wedding and parties in the city. Now that her number of clients is growing, she decided to rent a place and work from there, and to purchase modern machines. Therefore she took a $1500 loan from FATEN. The loan will increase her profits and number of clients they can serve, because they are now able to provide services to three clients at the same time.

Yusra and her son, Muhammad, appear in the photograph.
