A loan of $2,275 helped to purchase a new laptop.

Ensherah's story

Ensherah, who appears in the photo, is a Palestinian woman. She is married and a mother to one son, who is ten years old. Ensherah is employed and earns a low salary, which is not enough to cover all her needs.

Ensherah is requesting a USD loan from FATEN, to help her cover the cost of purchasing a new laptop. This will help Ensherah to do her homework and reports for work, and help her son in his studies. This will ensure a better future for Ensherah and improve the family's living conditions.

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.
