A loan helped buy a solar system for heating water for the family house.


Maher's story

Maher is a 43-year-old married man who lives in Biet Lahia camp, which is located in the Gaza Strip and suffers from power outages 12 to 16 hours a day regularly. He lives with his wife and five children in a small house. As an employee in the public sector, he earns a low income that barely covers the family's needs.

Because he is not able to save enough money, Maher took out a USD loan from FATEN. With this loan, he will buy a solar system for heating water for the family house. Palestinians use water boilers that use either gas or gasoline to heat the water before a shower, which can be dangerous, expensive, and inefficient. This will help him to provide hot water using solar energy, which is much less expensive than gas.
