A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase an additional, new sewing machine for her workshop.

Hana's story

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

Hana is a 30-year-old, married woman. She is a mother to two sons. For the past 20 years, Hana's family has had a small sewing workshop and now Hana and her husband, Ahmad, are operating this workshop. The workshop has been profitable and is the only source of income to the family, but it needs more support to cover some necessary costs.

Hana wants to expand her workshop, so she is requesting a loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) to cover the cost of purchasing an additional, new sewing machine. This will improve the quality of work and meet high customer demand in less time, which will increase sales and improve the family's income.
