A loan helped to buy a solar system for heating water for the family house.


Shaban's story

Shaban is a 29-year-old married man from Deir al-Balah, a city which is located in the Gaza Strip and regularly suffers from power outages 12-16 hours a day. He lives with his wife and one child in a small house. As an employee in the public sector, he earns a low income. This income barely covers all of the family's needs.

Because he is not able to save enough money, Shaban took a USD loan from FATEN. With this loan, he will buy a solar system for heating water for the family house. Palestinians use water boilers that use either gas or gasoline to heat the water before a shower, which can be dangerous, expensive and inefficient. This solar system will help him to provide hot water without using electricity, which is much more expensive.
