A loan helped to buy more stationery stocks to improve her book and school supplies store.

Samar's story

Samar is a 20-year-old, single woman from Nalein Village, near Ramallah City. She lives with her family in a very simple house.

Samar's father is a very hard worker, with low income. Samar could not go to the university because her family could not afford its expenses, but she took several training courses to improve herself, like typing and ICDL (a program for learning about computers).

For the past 4 years, Samar has had a small book and school supplies store, where she sells stationery to the students. It is the only one in her village. Samar's store is a very profitable business, but needs some help to be improved.

Samar is requesting a USD loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN). This loan will help her to buy more stationery stocks to improve the store. This will increase her income and improve her family's conditions.
