A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase new home furniture.


Areej's story

Areej is a 32-year-old young woman, and she is married with two sons and two daughters. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. Areej wants her family to live in better living conditions, so she wants to purchase new home furniture such as: bedroom furniture for her children, dining room furniture,etc., but the amount of money she has isn't enough, so she needs to take a loan of $1,000 from FATEN. When Areej gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, she will be able to purchase new home furniture which is necessary for home living. This will enable her to provide better living conditions for her family. Areej is a conservative woman, so her husband is photographed instead in the FATEN branch.
