Fatema is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Hasan appears in her Kiva profile photo next to a rickshaw. Fatema is a 40-year-old woman. She is married to Hasan and a mother to two sons. Fatema and her husband work in agriculture; they pick vegetables and transfer them to the market for sale. In order to facilitate this task, Fatema is requesting a 1,200 USD loan from FATEN to help her and her husband cover the cost of purchasing a new rickshaw. This will facilitate their task in transferring more vegetables to the market with less time and effort, which will increase sales and improve the family's income positively.
