Linda is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband, Mazen, appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Linda is a 40-year-old woman. She is married to Mazen and is a mother to three sons and one daughter.
For the past ten years, Linda's husband has been operating a flower store, which has been a profitable project, but also not enough to cover the family's cost of living. Linda is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing a new collection of artificial flowers and a machine to paste flowers and make different designs. This will improve their work's quality and attract customers to buy. This will increase Linda's husband's income and offer the family better living conditions.
