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

A loan helped to buy seeds, fertilizers, and pesticide for her farm.

Hanan's story

Hanan is a wonderful woman who tries her utmost to provide her family with a decent life. She is a 46-year-old refugee, living with her family in Qalqilia, West Bank. The only source of income for the family is farming. They plant different types of vegetables and sell them to the market, but the big problem that faces them is that this work is seasonal.

However, Hanan went to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to buy seeds, fertilizers, and pesticide for her farm, in order to improve her production and enhance the family's living standards. She hopes you will help by funding her loan.
