Samah is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Ma'moon appears in her Kiva profile, photographed in front of his store. Samah is a 31 year old young woman, she is a mother with four sons and one daughter.
For the past five years, Samah's husband has been selling recycled iron materials. This has been a profitable project, but not enough to cover the family's needs.
Samah is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing bulk of iron recycled materials to sell. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
