A loan of $3,000 helped to pay the costs of the license and insurance policy for her husband's taxi.


Fadwa's story

Fadwa is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Fadwa is a 41-year-old married woman from Kufr Kalil, a small village near Nablus. She is a mother of seven sons and five daughters. Her husband drives a taxi. This is a profitable business but still not enough for their big family.
Fadwa has requested a loan from FATEN. This loan will help Fadwa's husband to pay the costs of the license and the insurance policy for his taxi. By taking this loan it will allow Fadwa to help with the urgent expenses of the family.
