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

A loan helped to buy solar cells for her family house.

Samar's story

Samar is a 21-year-old refugee who lives with her family in a camp near Jabalia, Gaza Strip.

She tries hard to make her family live in the best conditions and cover all their needs.

Her father works in the public sector where he earns a low income and 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, Samar went to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to buy solar cells for her family house, to solve the problem of power outages.

She hopes you will help and fund his loan.
