Ola is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo, pictured in his store.
Ola is a 32-year-old married woman and the mother to two sons and one daughter.
For the past five years, Ola's husband has been selling accessories and stationery, which has been profitable, but the business needs more support to cover the family's needs and the store's costs.
Ola wants to live with her family in better conditions, so she is requesting a $2,000 loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing more accessories and stationery for the store. This will increase sales and improve the family's income and offer Ola and her family better living conditions.
