Haya is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her brother appears in her Kiva profile photo. The photo was taken in their bridal store.

Haya is a 21-year-old married woman from a small village called Beta near Nablus city. Haya always dreamed of having a bridal dress shop. and maybe in the future opening a huge bridal center in the city. Haya and her brother started to work on this idea so they rented a small store in the city center.

Haya took out a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help her to buy a collection of Imported dresses, either to sell or to rent out. This is a very profitable project especially in the summer because the number of wedding parties increases. This project will improve living conditions for Haya and her family.
