Taghreed is a 40-year-old wife and mother of three sons and one daughter: Du'a, Numan, Imad and Muhamamd who are 16, 15, 12 and 10 years old, respectively. Taghreed and her family live in Rafah city in Gaza Strip. Since the deterioration of life in Rafah when power cuts off often during the day, citizens of Gaza Strip started using power generators to avoid such cut offs.

Taghreed and her husband thought of a skill that is needed under such conditions. Her husband completed a generator repair course and after two years of practice, Taghreed's husband became an excellent handyman in this field and decided to start his own workshop. Therefore he took a $1,500 loan to buy the repair tools he needed. Taghreed's husband appears in the picture in his workshop.
