Jameleh is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her daughter Saedah appears in her Kiva profile photo, photographed at the university where she studies.
Jameleh is a married woman from Tulkarem City. She is the mother of two sons and two daughters. Her husband and sons are workers, but they earn low incomes. Their combined income barely covers the family's needs. The family could not afford Saedah's university installments so Jameleh took a loan from FATEN. This loan will help Jameleh to cover the university installments for her daughter.
