Falasteen is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Ahmad appears in her Kiva profile photo, pictured in his workshop.

Falasteen is a 24-year-old young woman. She is married to Ahmad and they don't have any children yet. For the past two years, Falasteen's husband has been opening a workshop for repairing computers and extending ADSL to homes and institutions, which has been a profitable project, but also needs more support to cover the family's needs.

Falasteen is requesting a 2,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing a new repair kit and to buy wire to extend ADSL. This will increase the size of his business and improve the service provided to his customers and thus improve the family's income.
