Alaa's story

Alaa is a wonderful young girl who tries her utmost to be self-reliant and provide her family with a decent life. She is a 23-year-old living with her family in a village near Hebron, West Bank.

She works in sewing. She sews beautiful dresses and clothes. It's the only source of income for her. She turned to Palestine for Credit and Development [FATEN] to request a loan to buy a sewing machine, yarns, silk and fabrics. This will improve her productivity and enhance her income.

She hopes you will help by funding her loan.
