Khadeja is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Nassr appears in her Kiva profile photo taken in his workshop.
Khadeja is a 46 year old woman, she is married to Nassr and has no children.
For the past two years, Khadeja's husband has been operating a carpentry workshop, 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.
Khadeja wants to participate in the improvement of her husband's quality of work, so she is requesting a 1000 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband to cover the cost of purchasing a new carpentry kit to ensure that. This will satisfy customers and increase their requests, which will improve the family's income positively.
