Ahlam
Ahlam is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo. He is pictured next to the rickshaw he will purchase.

Ahlam is a 27-year-old young married woman. She is a mother of two sons and one daughter. Her husband is employed with a low salary, which is not enough to cover all the family's costs and needs.

Ahlam is requesting a USD youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing a rickshaw. This will offer to Ahlam's husband another work that will help in improving the family's income.

About this loan product:
FATEN offers loans that are customized for Muslim borrowers. A key principle of Islam is the prohibition of charging interest on a loan. This prohibition is based on the belief that money is only a medium of exchange and has no value in itself. In order to offer loans in a manner that is considerable with borrowers' values, FATEN charges 0% interest on this loan. However, FATEN does charge a servicing fee to cover its costs. The loan amount you see listed on Kiva includes both the principal loan and the loan servicing fees. As with all Kiva loans, you should expect to have your funds returned to you according to this loan’s repayment schedule. For more information on lending in the Muslim world, please click here.
