Noor is a conservative woman who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo and is pictured in the mobile store he has.

Noor is a 23-year-old woman. She is married with three sons and two daughters. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee who gets a low salary that is not enough to cover the family's costs. For the past two years, Noor's husband has had a store selling mobile phones and accessories; it has been a profitable project.

Noor is requesting a $2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing a collection of mobile phones and accessories. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
