A loan helped to pay his educational fees to study social studies.

Muhannad's story

Muhannad, who appears in the photo, is a 20-year-old young man living with his family in a village near Tulkarem, West Bank. He is studying social studies at a local university. He studies hard to graduate and find a good job in the future. His father works in a barbershop where he earns a low income that is barely enough for the basic needs of the family. Muhannad went to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a loan to pay his educational fees for the new semester. He hopes you will help by funding his loan.
