Montaha is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online. Her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo, pictured in his taxi.

Montaha is a 28-year-old married woman with two sons. Her husband is a taxi driver. This is a profitable project, but it is the only source of income for the family and the business needs more support to be able to cover the family's needs.

Montaha wants to improve her family's living conditions, so she is requesting a 3,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of repairing the taxi. These include changing the wheels, installing new mirrors and lights, and painting. This will improve the taxi's condition and enable Montaha's husband to work extra hours and improve the family's income.
