A loan of $1,900 helped to purchase living room furniture and dinning room furniture.

Yasmeen's story

Yasmeen is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.

Yasmeen is a 24-year-old young woman. She is married and a mother to one son. Her husband is employed and gets a low salary which is not enough to cover the family's needs.

Yasmeen wants to live in better home conditions with her family, so she is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing new living room furniture and dinning room furniture in order to improve the living conditions in her house. Taking this loan will offer to Yasmeen and her family comfortable furniture so they can enjoy living in their house.

About Shariah-compliant lending:
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.
