Fadwa's story

Fadwa is a wonderful hardworking woman who tries her utmost to provide her family with a decent life. She is a 44 year old mother of 4 adorable children. She lives with her family in Tulkarem, West Bank. Her husband works in construction. It's a difficult job and requires a lot of effort. Fadwa has a sewing business to help her husband with the family expenses. She sews beautiful clothes and sells them to her customers upon request.

Fadwa turned to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to buy a sewing machine, yarn, silk, and fabric for her work. This will increase her production and enhance her family income. She hopes you will help by funding her loan.
