Tamador is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo. The picture was taken in his grocery store.
Tamador is a Palestinian woman. She is married and a mother to one son and three daughters. Her husband is employed and earns a small salary, which is not enough to cover all the family's needs.
For the past two years, Tamador's husband has had a grocery store, selling different types of groceries. It has been a profitable business and a second source of income for the family, but it also needs more support to cover the costs.
Tamador is requesting a USD 2,000 loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing needed stock of basic groceries that customers often request and buy, such as rice, sugar, canned food, and milk. This will increase sales and increase the family's income.
