Jumana's story

Jumana is a wonderful young girl who tries her utmost to be self-reliant and help her family with living expenses. She is a 21-year-old refugee living with her family in a village near Bethlehem, West Bank. She works in a store selling mobile phones, which is a good source of income for her.

She turned to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to buy a display table for the mobile phones. This will increase her sales and enhance her income. She hopes you will help by funding her loan.
