A loan helped buy a solar system for heating water for the family house.


Musa's story

Musa is a 30-year-old, married man from Rafah city, which is located in the Gaza Strip and suffers from power outages 12–16 hours a day regularly. He lives with his wife and two children in a small house. As an employee in the public sector, he earns a low income. This income barely covers all the family's needs.

Because he is not able to save enough money, Musa took a loan in U.S. dollars from FATEN. With this loan, he will buy a solar system for heating water for the family house. Palestinians use water boilers that use either gas or gasoline to heat the water before a shower, which can be dangerous, expensive, and inefficient. This will help him to provide hot water without using electricity, which is much more expensive.


This loan is special because:

It provides access to environmentally friendly products.
