Shahera's story

Shahera is a wonderful woman who tries her utmost to provide her family with a decent life. She is a mother of three adorable kids, living with her family in Nablus, West Bank. She works in making textiles. She makes beautiful things and sells to the customers in order to help her husband with the family expenses.

She went to Palestine for Credit and Development FATEN to request a loan to buy goods and raw materials for her work. This will improve her production and enhance her family’s living standards. She hopes you will help by funding her loan.
