Mohammed's story

Mohammed is 31 years old and from Gaza City in the Gaza Strip. He lives with his wife and son in a small house. As an employee in the public sector, he earns a low income, which barely covers all of the family's needs. Because he has not been able to save enough money to pay for his purchase all at once, Mohammed has applied for a 2,000 USD loan through Kiva's field partner FATEN to buy a solar water heating system. Palestinians use water boilers that use either electricity, gas or gasoline to heat the water, which can be dangerous, expensive and inefficient. This will help him provide hot water in his home without using electricity, which is much more expensive and not always available because of regular blackouts and the conflict in the Gaza Strip.
