Maha's story

Maha is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Mohammad appears in her Kiva profile photo. Maha is a 32-year-old married young woman. She is a mother to one son and one daughter and her husband is employed and earns a low salary, which is not enough to cover all the family's needs. For the past six months, Maha has been operating a beauty salon. She has many loyal customers because of her good reputation among them, which makes her project a successful one and a second source of income for the family. Because the project is just beginning, it is in need of more support. Maha is requesting a $1,500 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing women's cosmetics and accessories for her beauty salon. Taking this loan will increase sales and improve the family's income, which will enable them to live in better conditions. Maha is looking to expand the beauty salon in the future.
