Maria's story

Maria is a wonderfully ambitious young girl who tries her utmost to be self-reliant and help her family to live a decent life. She is a 22-year-old, living with her family in Bethlehem, West Bank.

She opened a small beauty salon because she is talented in makeup and hairdressing.

She turned to Palestine for Credit and Development FATEN to request a loan to buy makeup, creams, beauty tools, and supplies needed for her salon. This will improve her work and enhance her income.

She hopes you will help by funding her loan.
