A loan helped to buy solar cells for her house, to solve the problem of power outages.


Dareen's story

Dareen, who appears in the photo, is a 31-year-old married refugee woman who lives with her family in Jabalia, Gaza Strip. She is a mother of three adorable sons and one adorable daughter. She tries so hard to raise them in the best conditions and cover all their needs. Her husband works in the public sector where he earns a low income. This income is barely enough for the basic needs of his family.

Power outages and restrictions on electricity are common in the blockaded Gaza Strip, which affects the daily life of people living there. Because of that, Dareen went to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a US Dollar loan to buy solar cells for her house, to solve the problem of power outages. She hopes you will help and fund her loan.
