Samah is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Samah is a 45 year old married woman, a housewife and a mother to five children.
Samah's husband has a home products store. He is well known in the market and has many loyal customers, which makes his project a successful and profitable one. He is the only source of income for the family.
Samah wants to help her husband in bringing in a new collection of home products to sell, which will satisfy the customers and increase sales.
Samah is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the cost of purchasing home products.
This will increase Samah's husband’s sales and improve the family's income.
