Ayat's story

Ayat is a wonderfully ambitious young girl who tries her utmost to achieve her dreams and help her family to live a decent life. She is a 20-year-old refugee, living with her family in Bethlehem, West Bank. She is studying at the local university. She studies hard to get to graduate and find a good job in the future. Her mother is the sole provider for her; she works in the public sector with an income that barely covers the basic needs.

Ayat went to Palestine for Credit and Development FATEN to request a loan to pay her educational fees to the university. She hopes you will help by funding her loan.
