Reem is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo. He is pictured in his restaurant.

Reem is a 24-year-old young woman. She is married and a mother to two sons and one daughter.

For the past 3 years, Reem's husband has been operating a restaurant selling fast food and sandwiches. The business has been a profitable project, but does not yet bring in enough money to cover the family's expenses and cover the costs of work.

Reem is requesting a youth loan of 1,000 USD from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing a collection of meat and vegetables and a new refrigerator, which he will use for preserving food at his restaurant. This will allow Reem's husband to expand the scope of his work, improve his business, and increase the family's income.
