Ghadeer is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo, taken inside his store.

Ghadeer is a 27-year-old woman. She is married and a mother to one son and one daughter. She is a housewife and lives in the Jabalia refugee camp where there is a lack of job opportunities.

For the past three years, Ghadeer's husband has had a small workshop for designing and building various forms of mirrors to sell. He also designs mirrors upon customers' requests. His business has a good demand and is the only source of income to the family.

Ghadeer's husband has not enough money to pay for purchasing basic materials like glass and mirrors that are necessary to continue his work, so Ghadeer decided to help her husband to continue improving his job, which will increase the family's income and create for them better living conditions.

Ghadeer is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the cost of purchasing necessary materials like glass and mirrors to continue his job. Taking this loan will improve Ghadeer's husband's work and the family's living conditions.
