Fayza is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online. Her son appears in her Kiva profile photo, photographed in his cafe.
Fayza is a 47-year-old woman, and she is a widow and a mother with two sons. For the past year, Fayza's son has been operating a cafe, which has been a profitable project.
Fayza is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her son cover the costs of improving conditions in the cafe. The loan will pay for painting and purchasing new serving kits, trays, and additional chairs and tables. This will improve the image of the cafe and increase the number of customers, which will help her son increase his income.
