Najla is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Saed appears in her Kiva profile photo, next to his taxi. Najla is 21 years old, married to Saed, and a mother to one daughter. Her husband is employed but earns a low income which is not enough to cover all the family's needs. He would like to have his own taxi and work with it as an extra source of income, but the amount of money he has isn't enough to cover all the costs. Najla has taken a loan from FATEN to help her husband to purchase his taxi. This loan will help the family to get another source of income and live in better conditions.
