Basima's story

Basima is a 49-year-old married woman from Nablus, Palestine. She lives with her husband and 5 children in a small house. As an employee in the construction sector, her husband earns a low income. This income barely covers all the family's needs.

Because she is not able to save enough money, Basima took a USD loan from FATEN. With this loan, she will buy a solar system to heat water for the family home. 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 her to provide hot water without using electricity,
