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


Eman's story

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

Eman is a 25-year-old young woman. She lives in Beit Hanoun, Jabalia with her husband. Iman's husband is employed, with a very low wage. They want to improve their home by buying some necessary furniture such as living room furniture.

Eman took a USD Murabaha loan from FATEN to buy new living room furniture. This loan will help Eman and her husband to enjoy living in their house and improve their 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.
