A loan of $3,000 helped to help redecorate her husband’s barber shop.


Hiba's story

Hiba is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo. It was taken in his barber shop. Hiba is an 18-year-old married woman. She lives with her husband in a small village near Tulkarem. For the past seven years, Hiba's husband has had a barber shop, which has been a profitable project and his only source of income. Now he wants to make some innovations in the barber shop decorations. Hiba's husband doesn’t have enough money to cover all the costs, so Hiba decided to help him by applying for a $3,000 Youth Loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of redecoration, including installing new mirrors and shelves, and painting. This will allow Hiba's husband to expand his work and improve his business, and to increase the family's income.
