A loan of $1,800 helped to purchase new home furniture.

Amal's story

Amal is a conservative woman, so her husband is photographed instead.

Amal is a mother of two sons and two daughters all of whom are school students. Amal wants to complete the purchase of necessary home furniture such as: bedroom furniture for her children, dinning room furniture and living room seats so that she can offer her family better home living conditions. Yet, the amount of money she has isn't enough to buy these things, so she needs to take a loan from FATEN. Getting this loan will enable Amal to purchase necessary home furniture that she doesn't have in her house which will offer her family better and comfortable living conditions at home.

About this loan product:
FATEN offers loan products that are designed to serve borrowers all over Palestine, including some religiously conservative areas. A key tenet of Islam is the prohibition of interest in the lending or accepting of money. This prohibition is based on the belief that money should be seen only as a medium of exchange and that it has no value in itself. FATEN has adapted the terms of this loan to fit the cultural context by attaching a 0% interest rate to the loan. In order to cover its costs, FATEN does charge a servicing fee. The amount you see fundraising includes both the principal loan and the loan servicing fees. As with all Kiva loans, you should expect to have your funds returned to you in accordance with the repayment schedule attached to this loan.
