Rihab is a wife and mother of four sons. Her husband is a taxi driver in the city of Rafah in the Gaza Strip. Rihab's husband needs to have his car fixed and maintained.
Rihab took out a loan from FATEN to help her husband--who appears in the picture here instead of her as she is a conservative woman--to pay for the maintenance and increase the car's working hours and thus profit.
