Mona is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Eyad appears in her Kiva profile photo and has the picture next to his stall.

Mona is a Palestinian young woman, she is married with no children yet. For the past 2 years, Mona's husband has had a stall selling roasted peanuts and different types of sweets, which is located in a good movement area and near to local schools. It is the only source of income to the family, which needs more support to cover the costs. Mona is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing more roasted peanuts and sweets that customers often request and buy. This will increase sales and improve the family's income.
