Hala 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.
Hala is a 34-year-old married woman and a mother to two sons and two daughters. Her husband is employed and earns a small salary, which is barely enough to cover the family's needs.
For the past seven years, Hala's husband has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project, but also needs more support to cover some costs.
Hala is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of licensing and insuring the taxi he drives. This will enable Hala's husband to take additional internal and external requests, which will improve the family's income positively.
