Yasmin A. J. is a student and an ambitious young woman from Gaza city in Gaza Strip. Yasmin's husband, Muhammad, pictured above, started a small grocery store in the city four years ago. It is the only source of income for the family. Yasmin is also paying her tuition fees from the store profits.

Muhammad needs the $1500 loan to purchase food and other items to be sold in the store. (Because of her religious background, Yasmin does not wish to have her photo published.)
