Sawsan is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Sawsan is a 60-year-old, married woman, from Rafah. She lives in a small house with her husband. Her husband works as a plumber in his own workshop. This job is the only source of income to the family. Sawsan's husband would like to improve his workshop by buying more plumbing equipment and goods.
Sawsan took a USD loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN). This loan will help the family to increase their income by buying new equipment and goods for the plumbing workshop.
