Nada is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Nasser appears in her Kiva profile photo. The photo was taken in his grocery store.

Nada is a 30-year-old young woman. She is married and mother to three sons and two daughters. Her husband is employed but gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.

For the past three years, Nada's husband has had a store selling different types of groceries. It has been a profitable project, but not enough to generate working capital.

Nada is requesting a youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing needed stocks of basic groceries that customers often request, such as rice, canned food, and dairy products. This will increase sales and increase the family's income, and that will ensure to them better living conditions.
