Laila's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy new material needed for her decorative needlework business to continue providing great customer satisfaction and grow her enterprise.

Laila's story

Rasha is an independent, 48-year old woman from Tulkarem City, Palestine. Rasha is talented in traditional Palestinian fancywork (decorative needlework). She has been working at home for 15 years, helping her remain financially independent after she got married.

Now, Rasha has many loyal costumers who love her work and are willing to buy more pieces of her art. She has applied for a loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to buy new material needed for her business.

Many thanks from Rasha to anyone willing to support her.
