A loan of $2,000 helped to buy wool and a sewing machine to help her increase productivity rather than manual labor.


Somya's story

Somya, who appears in the photo, is a 26-year-old from Jabalia, Gaza Strip. She is a mother to one adorable child, and she tries hard to raise him in the best conditions possible.

Somya's husband earns a salary from governmental aid. Her husband's salary is so low that it is barely enough for their basic needs. Somya started knitting to help her husband with the family's expenses. She makes beautiful clothes.

Somya went to Palestine for Credit and Development FATEN to request a loan to buy wool and a sewing machine to help her increase productivity rather than manual labor. She hopes you will help and fund her loan.


This loan is special because:

It creates opportunity for women 35 and younger.
