Zohor is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo. The photo was taken in his office.
Zohor is a 37-year-old woman, she is married and is a mother to four sons and three daughters. Her husband is employed, but the salary he earns is not enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past three years, Zohor's husband has had an office where he provides printing, translating and copying services to students and customers. This has been a profitable project, but also not enough to cover his costs. Zohor wants to assist her husband in increasing the family's income, so she is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing a new copier machine. This will improve his work quality and increase demand from customers. This will increase the family's income and provide Zohor and her family with better living conditions.
