Ibtesam is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Adnan appears in her Kiva profile photo. He is photographed on his piece of land, next to olive trees.

Ibtesam is a 45-year-old woman. She is the mother of four sons and two daughters. Her husband Adnan is a worker who gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's costs.

For the past 13 years, Ibtesam's husband has also been working in agriculture, raising olive trees and selling their crops. This has been a profitable project.

Ibtesam is requesting a 1,200 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing more olive seedlings. This will maximize the crop, increase sales and improve the family's income.
