Olfat is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Mohammad appears in her Kiva profile photo, pictured in his store.
Olfat is a thirty-three-year-old young woman. She is married to Mohammad and is the mother of one son and one daughter. Her husband is employed, but the salary he gets is not enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past five years, Olfat's husband has also been selling computer spare parts and accessories, which has been a profitable project, but also needs more support to cover the costs.
Olfat is requesting a 1,200 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing more computer'spare parts and accessories. This will increase sales and improve the family's income and enable Olfat and her family to live in better conditions.
