Maysaa is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her son, who is over 18 years old, appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Maysaa is a 42-year-old woman. She is married and is a mother to five sons. Her husband is a worker who gets a low salary which is not enough to cover the family's needs and his sons’ education expenses.
Maysaa has her own project. She also has been raising and selling sheep and sheep products. This has been a profitable project, but also needs more support.
Maysaa is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing more sheep. This will increase sales and improve the family's income so they can live in better conditions.
