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

Mona is a 22-year-old married woman. She and her husband Bilal have no children yet. For the past two years, Mona's husband has had a stationery store, which is located near many schools in the area. His business is profitable, but it also needs more support to cover its costs. Mona wants to share the responsibilities for improving the family's income, so she is requesting a 1,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing a new collection of stationery. This will increase sales and improve the family's income to live in better conditions.
