Mona is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo, having the picture in front of his taxi.
Mona is a 47-year-old married woman and a mother to one son. For the past 18 months, Mona's husband has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income to the family. She is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband complete the price of purchasing a new taxi to drive. This will enable Mona's husband to have his own taxi and to work extra hours, which will enable her husband to take additional internal and external requests. This will improve the family's income positively.
