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

A loan helped to pay her medical expenses.

Ahlam's story

Ahlam is a wonderful, hardworking woman who tries her utmost to provide her family with a decent life. She is a 56-year-old mother of two sons and two daughters, living with her family in Bethlehem, West Bank.

Ahlam needs some medical expenses, and her income barely covers the basic needs. For that, she turned to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to pay her medical expenses.

She hopes you will help by funding her loan.
