Mays is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Mohammad appears in her Kiva profile photo, in a picture inside his store.

Mays is a 24-year-old young woman. She is married to Mohammad and a mother to two sons and one daughter. Her husband works in agriculture. In addition he has a store for selling bicycles to customers, which has become a profitable project, but needs more support to cover the costs.

Mays is requesting a 2,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her husband Mohammad cover the costs of purchasing a collection of bicycles to sell. This will offer to customers a better collection to choose from and buy, which will help to increase sales and improve the family's income.
