Entesar T. is a 41-year-old woman from Gaza City in the Gaza Strip. She is married to Mazen T. and is the mother of two daughters and two sons. Mazen used to own a poultry shop where he prepared poultry for sale. He is now an employee of the Palestinian National Authority.

Entesar decided to restore their poultry shop and urged her husband to start working there again in the afternoons. Entesar came to FATEN and took a $2,000 loan to purchase a machine that cleans the poultry automatically. Entesar believes that this machine will make the work faster and increase the number of customers they can serve.

Mazen appears in the picture working in the shop because his wife is not comfortable having her picture published and he is the one who works in the shop.
