Shazia is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.

Shazia is a 40-year-old woman. She is married and a mother to three sons and one daughter. Her husband is a worker across the border. He earns a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.

For the past five years, Shazia's husband has been purchasing used electrical goods and reselling them to customers. This has been a profitable project and a second source of income for the family, but it also needs more support to cover the costs.

Shazia is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the cost of purchasing bulk used electrical goods that customers prefer to buy because of the accepted prices. This will offer a varied collection of used electrical goods for customers to choose and buy. This will increase sales and improve the family's income positively.
