Ala is a young woman from Jenin. Her husband, who appears in the picture here as she is a conservative woman, is working in transportation. He rented a cargo car and works transporting goods, crops, and all kinds of items to stores around the city and neighboring villages.

Ala wanted to help her husband in purchasing a car so that he can stop paying a chunk of his income to the rental agency. Ala took out a loan from FATEN for this purpose to add it to the amount her husband has been able to save.
