Wafa's story

Wafa is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo next to his taxi. Wafa is a 32-year-old married woman and a mother to three sons and two daughters. For the past four years, Wafa's husband has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income for the family, but from time to time it needs support to cover the costs. Wafa is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing new engine for the taxi he drives and making some necessary repairs such as painting. This will increase the taxi capacity to work extra hours and enable Wafa's husband to take additional requests, which will improve the family's income positively.
