Tahreer 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 barber shop.

Tahreer is a 30-year-old young woman. She is married and a mother to five daughters. Her husband is employed and gets a low salary which is not enough to cover the family's needs.

For the past three years, Tahreer's husband has had a barber shop, which has been a profitable project, but also needs more support to cover its costs.

Tahreer is requesting a 2,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing a new barber kit such as: hair creams, hair dryers and brushes, different types of scissors; also improving the shop's condition, such as painting and installing lights.

This will improve the shop's condition and improve the quality of work, which will help to increase the family's income and help them live in better conditions.
