Aysha is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo, having the photo inside his store.

Aysha is a 55-year-old married woman and a mother to six sons, all of them over 18 years old.

For the past five years, Aysha's husband has had a general store selling different types of cleaning products. It has been a profitable project and the only source of income for the family.

Aysha is requesting a 2,500 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing needed cleaning products that customers often request, such as shampoo, laundry and tile cleaning materials. This will increase sales and increase Aysha's husband's income, which will contribute to provide better living conditions for Aysha and her family.
