Hanaa is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo. Hanaa is a 28-year-old woman, a mother with two sons and one daughter. Her husband is employed, but gets a low salary which is not enough to cover the family's expenses.

Hanaa is requesting a 3,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing new necessary home furniture instead of the very old furnishings, such as: bedroom furniture, dining room furniture, living room seats. This will offer Hanaa and her family better and more comfortable home furniture and this will reflect positively on their living conditions.
