Jehan is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Khaled appears in her Kiva profile photo.

Jehan is a 27-year-old young woman. She is married to Khaled who is a construction contractor who works with his father and gets a salary, which is not enough to cover all life's costs.

Jehan is requesting a 3,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing construction supplies, such as tiles, bleaching and painting, to finish a number of stores he has in order to lease them. This will enable Jehan's husband to improve the stores' condition and have the opportunity to lease them to customers soon, which will increase and improve the family's income.
