Mona is a 30-year-old married woman and the mother of two sons. She is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband, Mahmoud, appears in her Kiva profile photo next to his vegetable stall.

For the past ten years, Mona's husband has had this vegetable and fruit stall. He sells different types of seasonal fruits and vegetables in the central market where there is good customer movement and high demand to purchase vegetables and fruits. All this makes Mona's husband's business a profitable one. It is the only source of income for the family and sometimes it needs more support to cover its urgent costs.

Mona is requesting a $1,300 US youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the cost of purchasing a new collection of fruits and vegetables to sell. This will increase customers' demand and allow Mona's husband to offer a better selection for his customers to buy, which will improve the family's income.
