Leena's story

Leena is a 29-year-old married woman from Jabalia City, which is located in the Gaza Strip. She has one adorable child and is trying hard to provide everything that her family needs. Leena works at a beauty salon where she earns a low income that is barely enough to cover all of her family’s needs. However, she wants to make her family more comfortable and improve their standard of living.

Leena is taking a US dollar loan from Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) that will enable her to buy a solar energy system for heating water at her house. By taking this loan, she will be able to decrease her electricity expenses while using a cleaner form of energy (rather than gas). Her family will have an easier time heating water for showers, cooking, and also washing clothes and dishes. Leena appears in the photo above.
