Ra'eda is a 37-year-old woman and a mother of three sons. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. He also works in agriculture to increase his income.
Ra'eda wants to help her husband in paying for some necessary repairs to the family's vehicle, which they use for daily transport, such as changing the vehicle engine, changing the doors, painting, etc. Therefore, she needs to take a loan from Kiva partner, FATEN. This loan will enable Ra'eda to help her husband pay for vehicle repairs. This will increase the vehicle's efficiency and provide the family with comfortable conditions when travelling in the vehicle. Ra'eda is shown in the picture.
