Ruba's story

Ruba is a 25-year-old woman who is married with one son. Her husband (pictured) is a lawyer who works in a private office but receives a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's expenses.

Ruba's husband, whose name is Talha, decided to improve his income by opening his own office to provide legal consultations for customers. Therefore, Ruba is requesting a $3,000 youth loan from FATEN to help her husband buy the necessary office equipment such as a printer, copier and fax machine as well as the necessary office furniture such as chairs, shelves, a desk, etc. Having his own office will enable Talha to increase his income and improve the family's living conditions.

Ruba is a conservative woman who prefers not to have her photo published online. So her husband, Talha, appears in her Kiva profile photo above.
