Khadeja is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Ahmad appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Khadeja is a 42-year-old woman, a mother with three sons and one daughter. One of her sons is a Palestinian National Authority employee who gets a low salary. Khadeja and her husband work in agriculture raising and selling sheep and sheep products, which has been a profitable project.
Khadeja is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing more sheep and olive seedlings. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
