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

A loan helped to expand her nursery and kindergarten.

Lateefa's story

Lateefa is a married woman, living with her family in a simple house in Jenin City. She is a strong and independent woman. Two years ago Lateefa decided to open her own business. She manages and operates a nursery and kindergarten. After she married the kindergarten became her only source of income.

Lateefa took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan enabled her to expand her nursery and kindergarten. She hopes that this new expansion will enable her to increase her customers, and eventually improve her family's conditions.
