Tahreer is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Tahreer is a 26-year-old, married woman, from Qalqilia. She is a mother of two sons.
She lives with her husband and children in an old house. Her husband is a worker with a low wage. They are working now to build a new house with better conditions. She is looking forward to completing the new home. She does not have enough money for this, so she needs a loan of USD 1,500 from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN). Her home will be completed and will be ready to live in with her family.
