A loan of $1,425 helped to buy her husband a rickshaw so he can bring in extra income.


Hajar's story

Hajar is a conservative person who prefer not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in the photo. Hajar is a 34-year-old married woman from Deir El Balah city in the Gaza Strip, Palestine. She lives with her husband and six kids (four sons and two daughters) in a small and simple house. Hajar's husband works as an employee in the public sector with a low income. This income barely covers the family's needs, and he would like to work extra hours to improve the family's living conditions. Hajar took a loan from FATEN, Kiva's field partner, to help her husband buy a new rickshaw to work on, providing rides and transportation to customers. By taking this loan, Hajar's husband can increase his income and also improve the family's living conditions.
