Faten is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo, in the picture next to his taxi. Faten is a 32-year-old young woman. She is married and a mother to two sons and two daughters.
For the past three years, Faten's husband has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income to the family, but also it needs more support to cover the cost.
Faten is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to provide a share with her husband to complete the price of purchasing a new taxi. This will improve the family's income positively and create better living conditions for Faten and her family.
