Ohoud is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo. He is pictured in the location of their new house.

Ohoud is a 22-year-old young woman; she is married and has no children yet. Ohoud's husband is a worker and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.

Ohoud wants to share with her husband in completing building their new house, so she is requesting a loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing necessary construction supplies, such as cement, construction bricks, wood and iron.

This will help to complete building the house and enable Ohoud and her husband to live in their new house soon.
