Abeer is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo. Abeer is a married woman from Saida, a small village near Tulkarem. She is a mother for three young daughters. Her husband works as a blacksmith in his own workshop. It is a profitable project that earns him a good income but is not enough for the family’s needs.
Abeer took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help Abeer's husband to buy some heavy tools for his workshop. This will develop it and help to increase his income.
