Nofoz is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her elder son Alaa' appears in her Kiva profile photo, pictured in the family farm next to the seedlings.
Nofoz is a 46-year-old woman. She is married and a mother to three sons and three daughters. Her husband and all her family members are working in agriculture, which is the only source of income for the family, but also needs more support to cover the costs.
Nofoz is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing summer season seedlings. This will increase the crop and improve the family's income.
