Abeer is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Ziad appears in her Kiva profile photo. He is pictured next to the greenhouse they have.
Abeer is a 41-year-old married woman; she is a mother to one son and three daughters. Her husband is a worker across the border who earns a low salary that is not enough to cover the family's needs.
Abeer works in agriculture with the rest of the family members, and she wants to contribute to the purchase of seasonal seedlings to plant in the greenhouse. She is requesting a $2,000 USD loan from FATEN to provide a share of the family's costs of purchasing the seedlings. It will allow them to produce a better crop and thus increase their sales and improve the family's income.
