Yousef's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to pay the rent on the house where he lives until his house is ready.

Yousef's story

Yousef is a 30-year-old married man from Jabalia City in Gaza Strip. He works as an employee in the public sector where he earns a low income, barely enough for basic needs.

His house was destroyed at the last conflict in Gaza. He is taking a USD loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to pay the rent on the house where he lives until his own house is ready. He hopes that you will help him and fund his loan.
