Maryam's story

Maryam is a wonderful, hardworking woman who tries her utmost to provide her family with a decent life. She is a 38-year-old mother of four adorable kids who lives with her family in a village near Hebron, West Bank. Her husband works in construction, which is a hard job that requires a lot of effort. Maryam started sewing embroideries; she sews beautiful things and sells them to customers.

She turned to Palestine for Credit and Development FATEN to request a loan to buy a sewing machine, yarns, silk, and fabrics for her work. This will increase her production and earnings. She hopes you will help by funding her loan.
