Maysaa is a conservative woman who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Khaleel appears in her Kiva profile photo.

Maysaa is 25-year-old young woman. She is married and her husband is employed, but with a low salary. His salary is not enough to cover the family's needs and to pay for completing their house.

Maysaa is requesting a 1,500 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of completing her house, including expenses such as installing tiles, installing windows and doors, and painting. This will improve the condition of the house and create better living conditions for the family.
