Noor is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Nidal appears in her Kiva profile photo, having the picture next to his rickshaw.

Noor is a 32-year-old married young woman. She is a mother to two sons and two daughters. Her husband Nidal is employed and gets a small salary, which is not enough to cover all the family's needs. For the past year, her husband has been driving a rickshaw, which has been a profitable project. She is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing a new rickshaw.

This will help Noor's husband have his own rickshaw and to work extra hours and take more requests, which will improve the family's income positively.
