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

A loan helped to pay her son's education fees for his school.

Saeda's story

Saeda is a wonderful woman who tries her utmost to provide her family with a decent life. She is 35 years old, a mother of four adorable kids, living with her family in Jericho, West Bank.

Saeda placed her son in a private school to receive an excellent education and have a wider field of excellence in his studies, but the family income barely covers the basic needs. For that, she turned to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to pay her son's education fees for his school. She hopes you will help by funding her loan.

Saeda is a conservative woman; because of that, her son appears in the photo instead of her.
