A loan of $2,000 helped to purchase needed stock of basic groceries.

Sarah's story

Sarah is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Jamal appears in her Kiva profile photo in his grocery store.

Sarah is a 36-year-old married woman and a mother to three sons and one daughter. She is a housewife and her husband Jamal is a schoolteacher who gets a low salary, which is barely enough to cover the family's needs.

For the past four years, Sarah's husband has had a grocery store selling different types of groceries. It has been a profitable project as it is the only grocery store in the small village where Sarah and her family live, but not profitable enough to cover the costs. Sarah is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of purchasing needed stock of basic groceries that customers often request such as rice, canned food and milk. This will increase sales and increase Sarah's family income.
