Nahid is married and has five children. She is a teacher. Her husband is an assistant chef in Jerusalem. Currently, they live in a rented house. With their savings, they were able to buy a small apartment, but they need to finish it immediately to move to it before winter starts, because their rented house is not appropriate.

Nahid approached FATEN for a loan to finance some of the last urgent finishing issues in their new house. She requested $1500 USD.

Nahid appears in the picture at her office in the school where she teaches.
