Yasmeen is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Yasmeen is a 22-year-old young married woman, she lives with her husband in a small village near Nablus city. Her husband is a construction worker who earns small salary, which is not much enough to cover all costs.
For the past two three years, Yasmeen has had a sewing workshop for sewing clothes for customers, which has been a profitable project.
Yasmeen is requesting a 3,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing an additional sewing machine to provide better quality to her loyal customers. This will increase sales and improve Yasmeen's income.
