A loan of $2,000 helped to purchase fruits and vegetables to resell.


Fatema's story

Fatema is a 57-year-old woman who is a mother of five sons and one daughter. Two of her sons are workers with small salaries. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee who earns a small salary, but not enough to cover the family's needs and expenses. Fatema wants to help improve the family's income by starting her own project: selling fruits and vegetables to customers and neighbors. Fatema is requesting a $2,000 US loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing fruits and vegetables to start her project.

Fatema is a conservative woman who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her son Abdul Rahman appears in her Kiva profile photo.
