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


A loan helped to buy a solar energy system for her home to reduce electricity use and obtain hot water.


Rasha's story

Rasha is a wonderful hardworking woman who does her best to provide a decent life for her family. She is a 38-year-old refugee and lives with her family in a camp near Ramallah, West Bank. Rasha works in the private sector as her only source of income.

She wants to improve her family’s standard of living. For this reason, she turned to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to buy a solar energy system for her home to reduce electricity use and obtain hot water. Rasha hopes that the lenders will help with the funding of her loan.
