Samar is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Samar is a 29-year-old married young woman; she is the mother to one son and one daughter. Her husband is employed and gets a small salary, which is not enough to cover all the family's needs.
Samar is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing new living room furniture in order to improve the living conditions in her house. Taking this loan will allow Samar and her family comfortable furniture so they can enjoy living in their house.
