Lina is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo. Lina is a married woman from a small village near Tulkarm. She is a mother with five sons and two daughters. Lina's husband works as a worker with a low wage that is not enough for the family’s needs.
Lina took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help her to improve the family home by adding a new room and by building a fence around the house. This will improve the family’s living conditions.
