Dalal is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her son Mohammad appears in her Kiva profile photo, pictured inside the house.
Dalal is a Palestinian married woman and the mother of three sons and six daughters. Three of her daughters are married, her eldest son is an engineer, and her husband is a worker who earns a low salary that is not enough to cover the family's needs.
Dalal is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing the necessary construction supplies to finish building her house and improve its condition. This will help Dalal to move the rest of her family into the house sooner and to enjoy better living conditions.
