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

A loan helped to pay her educational fees at the university.

Omaima's story

Omaima is a wonderfully ambitious young woman who tries her utmost to achieve her dreams and help her family with living expenses. She is 19 years old and is living with her family in Ramallah, West Bank. She is studying at the local university; she studies hard in order to graduate and find a good job in the future.

Her father is the sole provider for the family, but his income barely covers the basic needs. Because of that, Omaima went to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to pay her educational fees at the university. She hopes you will help by funding her loan.
