Hind is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her brother appears in her Kiva profile photo, in her place.

Hind is a 23-year-old, young woman, who is divorced and has no children. For the past seven months, Hind has had a bookstore. She has been selling stationery to students and to institutions. What distinguishes this project is that it is located near many schools and has many loyal customers. The bookstore has been a profitable project and the only source of income to Hind. But it needs more support to cover the costs.

Hind is requesting a USD youth loan from FATEN, to purchase a collection of stationery that students and customers often request and buy. This will increase sales and improve Hind's income positively.
