Saja is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Saja is a 23-year-old married woman and a mother of one son and one daughter.
For the past three years, Saja's husband has been operating a car wash located next to the main street where there is good traffic. This has been a profitable project and the only source of income for him.
Saja is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing a new washing machine for cars. This will attract more customers and increase the car wash's capacity to wash more cars. This will increase their income.
