Hadeel's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to pay for her mother's retinal surgery.

Hadeel's story

Hadeel is a wonderful young woman who tries her utmost to make her family live a decent life and provide them all the things they need. She is a 24-year-old refugee, living with her family in a village near Ramallah, West Bank.

She works in a clothing store where she earns a low income that barely covers all the family needs. Her father works in construction where it's a hard job and needs a lot of effort.

Hadeel's mother suffers from a retinal defect and needs surgery to correct it. For that, Hadeel went to Palestine for Credit and Development FATEN to request a loan to pay for her mother's retinal surgery. She hopes you will help by funding her loan.

Her mother appears in the photo because Hadeel is a conservative girl.
