Suha J. is a housewife and the mother of two sons, Ahmad and Fadi, who are 2.5 and 1.5 years old respectively. Suha and her family live in a village called Qarawet bani Zaid next to Ramallah. Suha's husband owns an auto repair workshop. The workshop is well enough that Suha's husband, Tareq, can pay for their household expenses.

Tareq needs to make a few improvements to the workshop, so Suha took a $300 dollar loan to help her husband improve his workshop and purchase more tools to help him perform his job better.

In the picture above, Tareq appears in his workshop.
