Wisam is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Abdel Kareem appears in her Kiva profile photo, having the picture taken in his store.

Wisam is a 20-year-old married young woman with no children yet. For the past two years, Wisam's husband has been working in clothing sales. He has a store selling different types of men clothes. His store is located in a good commercial area and has many loyal customers because he brings in a good quality of men clothes. This makes his project a profitable one and the only source of income to the family, but also from time to time it needs more support to cover the cost.

Wisam is requesting a 2,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing a new collection of men clothes to sell. This will allow Wisam's husband to expand the scope of his work, improve his business, and increase the family's income.
