Kifah is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Shareef appears in her Kiva profile photo.

Kifah is 25 years old and married. Her husband, who we see here, is a Ministry of Labor employee who earns a low salary which is not enough to cover the family's needs. For the past three years, he has also been raising and selling sheep and sheep products, which has been a profitable project. She is requesting a $3,000 youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of buying more sheep and improving the herd's condition. This will increase sales and raise the family's income.
