Jehan is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo pictured next to his taxi. Jehan is 34 years old and she is the mother of three sons and three daughters who range in age from two to 12 years.

For the past five years, Jehan's husband has been driving a taxi. This has been a profitable endeavor and the family’s only source of income. Jehan is requesting a loan of $1,500 from FATEN to help her husband cover the cost of licensing and insuring the taxi he drives. This will enable Jehan's husband to move freely from one area to another and to take additional internal and external requests, which will increase the family's income.
