Muna is 38 years old; she lives in a small house in Gaza with her husband and six children. Four of them attend the public primary school and two of them are still in kindergarten.

For the past five years, she has run a food market that she rents; she hopes in the future to buy a grocery. This business has helped the family income because her husband works in a public institution, which pays low salaries. This is especially important because they are a big family and need the income to take care of their kids.

Muna sells different kinds of foodstuffs, like soft drinks, cookies and kids’ stuff. She asked Ryada for this loan to buy goods to sell and shelves for her food market.

Muna is very grateful to everyone who helps her. The one who appears in the photo is her husband Khaled. For cultural reasons she can’t publish her photos online, so she apologizes.
