Areej is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Monther appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Areej is a 32 year old young woman. She is married and a mother to three sons and one daughter.
For the past six months, Areej's husband has been operating a barber shop. The barber shop is the only one in the area and has good customer flow. These factors make the shop successful.
The shop is the family's only source of income and it needs more support to cover some necessary costs. Areej is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing a new barber kit. The loan will allow Monther to provide better quality service to his loyal customers and increase the family's income.
