Laila is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her son, who is a bank employee, appears in her Kiva profile photo, pictured in front of the store to deliver orders.
Laila is a 42-year-old woman. She is married and a mother to two sons and two daughters, all of them are above 18 years old.
Laila and her elder son, who is a bank employee, have a project to deliver orders. They contract with big stores and restaurants to deliver their orders to homes and institutions. They have two motorcycles that are used to deliver orders from one place to another, but they are not enough as the size of work is increased.
Laila is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing two other motorcycles. This will help Laila and her son to handle all orders and deliver them in a short time and improve the family's income.
