Fadwa is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Mahmoud appears in her Kiva profile photo. He is pictured with the new chairs he wants to purchase.

Fadwa is a 25 year old married young woman. She is a mother to one son and one daughter. Her husband is employed but earns a low salary that is not enough to cover the family's needs.

For the past two years, Fadwa's husband has been purchasing chairs and renting them to customers. This has been a profitable project and provides the family with a second source of income. Fadwa is requesting a $2,500 youth loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing additional new chairs. This loan will increase the family's income and offer them better living conditions.
