Maha is a young mother from Bethlehem. She is a teacher and the mother of three children. Maha has a B.A. degree and started working as a teacher one year ago. Her husband is a handyman who doesn't have a stable job.

Maha's husband owns a small piece of land, so she decided to start a small business selling flowers and fruits. She plans to buy seedings to start growing flowers and, maybe, trees.

Maha wants to use the returns from this business as a second source of income. In the future, she hopes to save some money to expand her business and save for her three children's higher education.

Maha's husband, Ahmed, appears in the picture with one of their sons.
