Iman's story

Iman is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.
Iman is a 24-year-old married woman from Beit Hanoun near Jabalia. She lives in a humble house with her husband and three young children; two boys and one daughter. Iman's husband works as an employee in the public sector and gets a low income. This income barely covers the family needs and necessary expenses. Iman's husband works also on a taxi in the evening so he will have another source of income.
Iman took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help Iman's husband to do the yearly maintenance for his taxi. This will help him with part of the urgent expenses he has. This will allow him to work extra hours especially in the area where he lives which is very crowded.
