Ribhya's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to add to her savings to purchase a new taxi.
Ribhya is a 53-year-old married woman with six sons and two daughters. Her husband works as a taxi driver. One of her sons is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. She also has an income from working in agriculture. Ribhya has a taxi that makes internal and external trips. She wants to replace the old taxi with a bigger new one. She has part of the payment, but she needs to add to her savings by taking out a loan from FATEN for $3,000. When Ribhya gets this loan, to be repaid on a monthly basis, she will have the full amount of money she needs to pay for replacing the old taxi she owns with a new bigger one. This will increase her income and allow her family to live in better conditions. Ribhya and her husband are photographed near the old taxi that she wants to replace.
