Ablah is a 38-year-old married woman from Rafah. She is the mother of three sons & three daughters. Her husband works as an employee in the public
sector, and also as a taxi driver to cover the family needs and live a decent life.
Ablah is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo. The picture is of him next to his taxi.
Ablah would like to help her husband in his taxi business so she took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help Ablah's husband pay the costs of maintaining the taxi. This will increase the taxi capacity, and earn more money.
