Subhia is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Naser appears in her Kiva profile photo.

Subhia is a thirty-year-old young woman and a mother to two sons and two daughters. Her husband is a taxi driver who earns a low income which is not enough to cover all of the family's needs and the taxi's costs.

Subhia wants to improve the living conditions of her family by sharing her husband's ambition to increase the family's income. She is requesting a 2,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of insuring and licensing a taxi, the family's only source of income. This will enable Subhia's husband to travel freely and legally from one area to another and work extra hours, consequently increasing requests and improving the family's income.
