Amani's story

Amani, who appears in the photo, is a 25-year-old married woman who lives with her family in Jabalia, Gaza Strip. She is a mother of two adorable kids. She tries 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 to cover all the basic needs of the family. Amani works in sewing; she sews beautiful clothes and sells them to the customers. She turned to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to buy a sewing machine, yarn, and fabric for her work in sewing. She hopes you will help by funding her loan.
