Eman is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Sharef appears in her Kiva profile photo. The photo is in their grocery store.

Eman is a 22-year-old young married women. She has five children: three boys and two girls. Eman and her husband live with their children in a small house in Jabalia camp. Her husband is employed with a low salary. This wage barely covers the family needs. They receive additional income from a small grocery store they have owned for the past two years. It is considered as a successful business but needs more liquidity to bring more stock to resell.

Eman took a USD youth loan from Kiva partner FATEN to develop the family business. This loan will help them to buy more products for the store such as dairy products, canned food, cooking oil and rice. This will increase sales and improve the family's income positively.
