Kholoud is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo standing next to his car.

Kholoud is a 30-year-old woman, a mother with two sons. Her husband is a construction contractor who gets a low salary which is not enough to cover the family's costs.

Kholoud is requesting a 2,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing a new sewing machine to start her new project at home to sew clothes for customers. This sewing machine will increase sales and improve the family's income.
