Osama's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a solar-powered energy system to give Osama's household hot water.

Osama's story

Osama is a 45-year-old refugee from Jabalia, Gaza Strip and the father of three adorable children. He tries very hard to raise them in the best conditions possible and cover all their needs, yet he works in the public sector where he earns an income barely sufficient to support them.

Wanting to enhance their living standards, Osama went to Kiva's field partner Palestine for Credit and Development FATEN to apply for a 1,000 USD loan to buy a solar-powered energy system to heat his household’s water. He hopes lenders will help and fund his loan.
