Diana is a young woman from Qalqilia in Palestine. She is married and is the mother of two daughters and two sons. Diana has taken a loan of $500 to purchase tools for manufacturing gypsum and decorations. Her husband has a small workshop in his house producing statues and decorative items for the home and he installs them as well. This loan from Kiva partner, FATEN, will allow Diana's husband to take more contracts and increase his number of customers.
Diana is a conservative woman and therefore her husband is shown in the photograph instead.
