Sana' is a 44-year-old woman. She is married with two sons and one daughter. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. Sana' wants to make repairs to her house such as changing tiles, changing windows and doors, and painting but she does not have enough money. Therefore she needs a loan of $1,000 from FATEN. When Sana' gets the loan, she will be able to pay for repairs and improve the condition of the family house. Sana' is a conservative woman so her husband, Mostafa, is photographed instead.

About Housing Loans
