A loan of $500 helped to purchase raw material to produce dusters to sell.


Sameera's story

Sameera is a 42-year-old married woman who has six sons and three daughters. One of her sons is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a modest salary. Sameera has her own project, which is making dusters for sale. In this way, she shares with the family in meeting life's expenses. Sameera wants to purchase raw materials for making dusters, but the amount of money she has isn't enough. Therefore, she wants to take a loan of $500 from Kiva partner, FATEN. When Sameera takes the loan, which is to be repaid on a monthly basis, she will purchase the required raw materials and produce more dusters to sell. This will increase her income and enable her to have better living conditions. Sameera is photographed holding one of the dusters that she makes.
