Eman is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Eman is a 40-year-old woman and the mother to four sons and four daughters. Her husband is employed, but his salary is not enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past five years, Eman has operated a public services office, offering printing, copying and translating services to clients. It has been a profitable project, but it needs more support to cover the costs.
Eman is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help cover the costs of purchasing a new printer and copier machine to improve the project's offerings. This will increase the quantity and the quality of her work and improve the family's income.
