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

Karemeh is a 49-year-old married woman. She has 9 children: 6 boys and 3 girls. The family lives in Rafah. Karemah's husband works in the public sector with a low income that does not cover all of the family's needs, especially the education expenses for the children.

Karemeh is requesting a loan from FATEN to cover her children's education expenses. This loan will help the family to pay part of the university installments for Karemeh's daughter, who is specializing in Arts. Karemeh hopes that this loan will ensure a better future for her daughter and improve the family's living conditions.
