Mona is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Subhi appears in her Kiva profile photo, pictured next to his taxi. Mona is a 51-year-old woman, she is married to Subhi and a mother to one son. For the past year, Mona's husband has owned a taxi and worked as a taxi driver. The business has been profitable, but they also need more support to cover their family's needs. Mona wants to share in improving the family's income to provide better living conditions, so she is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing and installing a new engine for his taxi. This will improve the efficiency of the taxi and enable Mona's husband to work extra hours by taking more requests, thereby improving the family's income.
