Alaa's story

Alaa is a 19-year-old, young man, from Jabalia. He is a very hard worker, but the income he gets is very low. Alaa wants to complete his home and buy all the necessary home appliances and furniture, so he will be ready to get married. Alaa took a USD Murabaha loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN). This loan will help Alaa to improve his home by buying some furniture, especially for the bedroom. Alaa appears in the photo.
