Aziza is a 48-year-old woman who is married and has two daughters and two sons. She owns a shop selling household appliances in Dier Al-Balah, Gaza Strip. Aziza took out a $1,000 loan to purchase more household appliance products to expand and improve her business. When Aziza receives the loan from FATEN, she can purchase the required products and achieve her goal of expanding and improving her store. This will be reflected in an increase in the family income and the achievement of better living conditions.
Aziza is a religious woman who prefers not to have her photo on the internet, therefore her husband is photographed instead.
