Ruba's husband, whose name is Talha, decided to improve his income by opening his own office to provide legal consultations for customers. Therefore, Ruba is requesting a $3,000 youth loan from FATEN to help her husband buy the necessary office equipment such as a printer, copier and fax machine as well as the necessary office furniture such as chairs, shelves, a desk, etc. Having his own office will enable Talha to increase his income and improve the family's living conditions.
Ruba is a conservative woman who prefers not to have her photo published online. So her husband, Talha, appears in her Kiva profile photo above.
