Basma's story

Basma is a conservative woman, so she asked her youngest son, Saleh, to take the photo instead. Basma is a 56-year-old widowed lady. She has two sons and one daughter, who is married now. Her son Saleh, 21 years old, who is appearing in the photo, is a student and security guard in a private company.

Two years ago, after facing a lot of financial trouble, Basma had to think of making a source of income for the family, so she opened a small, basic grocery store. Now, her youngest son is studying and working at the same time, and having the food market was one of the reasons they have survived.

Therefore, Basma wants to improve the store and add more products so her son will have his own business when he finishes school.
