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

A loan helped to pay university fees for the new semester.

Waseem's story

Waseem is a 20-year-old, single, smart young man who lives with his family in a small humble house. He is a student in a local university, where he studies mechanical engineering. Waseem's father is a small employee and earns a low income, barely enough to cover his family's needs.

He went to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan. This loan will enable him to pay university fees for the new semester. Waseem makes the utmost effort to graduate and find a job to help his family. He appears in the photo.
