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

A loan helped to pay her educational fees to the university.

Baraa's story

Baraa is a wonderfully ambitious young woman who tries her utmost to provide her family with a decent life. She is a 23-year-old, living with her family in Bethlehem, West Bank. She is studying at the local university. She studies hard so she'll be able to graduate and find a good job in the future. Her family income is low and barely covers basic needs. Because of that, Baraa went to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to pay her educational fees to the university. She hopes you will help by funding her loan.
