Nafiseh is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Nafiseh is a Palestinian married woman from Beit Hanoun. She lives in a simple house with her husband and four kids: two boys and two girls. Nafiseh's husband is a worker who earns a low wage. This is the only source of income for the family.
