Maha is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Maha is a young woman, thirty-two years old, with no children yet. For the past five years, Maha's husband has been raising and selling broilers, which has been a profitable project.
Maha is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing bulk quantities of broilers to raise and resell. This will increase sales and positively improve the family's income.
