Tahani is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Baha' appears in her Kiva profile photo. Tahani is 31 years old, married and has three sons and one daughter. Her husband earns a living by running a butcher shop, which has been profitable for him and the family. She is requesting a $1,100 loan from FATEN to help her husband buy a meat grinder. This will increase her husband's sales and improve the family's income.
