Aziza is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Aziza is a 58-year-old woman. She is married and a mother to five sons and two daughters. She is employed and receives a small salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs and their educational expenses.
For the past five years, Aziza and her family members have been working in agriculture, which has been a profitable project. But they need more support to cover their costs.
Aziza is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to provide a share of the family's costs of purchasing seasonal seedlings and fertilizers. It will allow them to produce a better crop and thus increase their sales and improve the income to live in better conditions.
