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

A loan helped to pay her university education fees.

Alaa's story

Alaa, who appears in the photo, is a wonderfully ambitious woman who tries her utmost to achieve her dreams and make her family live a decent life.

She is a 37-year-old refugee, living with her family in Tulkarem, West Bank. She is studying at a local university to get a Ph.D. in botanics, this will improve her work and enhance her life. Her husband works in the military sector, but his income barely covers the basic needs. For that, Alaa turned to Palestine for Credit and Development FATEN to request a loan to pay her university education fees. She hopes you will help by funding her loan.
