Montaha is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Hussam appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Montaha is a 21-year-old young woman. She is married to Hussam and is mother to one daughter. Her husband is a school teacher; he also operates a small grocery store.
Montaha wants to help her husband with his work, so she is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the cost of purchasing a new laptop. This will help Montaha's husband do his school reports and help him operate his grocery store calculations. This will ensure a better future for Montaha's husband and improve the family's living conditions.
