Alaa's story

Alaa is a wonderful hard working woman who tries her utmost to provide her family with a decent life. She is a 32-year-old refugee, a mother of one son, living with her family in Bethlehem, West Bank.

Her husband works in the public sector where he earns a low income, this income is barely enough to cover all the family's needs. Alaa works in sewing, she sews beautiful clothes and sells to the customers, she helps her husband with the family expenses.

She went to Palestine for Credit and Development - FATEN to request a loan to buy a sewing machine, yarns, and fabrics for her work. She hopes you will help by funding her loan.
