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

Laila is a 20-year-old married woman. For the past three years, Laila's husband has had a small cosmetics store located in a busy area in Jabalia's market. This store contains several beauty products such as hair products, face and hair creams. This project is considered to be a very successful one, but it needs more support to cover costs.

Laila took a USD youth loan from FATEN to help her husband buy more cosmetic products for the store. This loan will help the family to increase their income.
