Samah’s story

Samah is 20-year-old woman living in Gaza. She is a brilliant student who studies education at a university in Gaza.

Samah took a USD loan from FATEN to buy a laptop. Her father works as a guard and his income is very limited and unstable so he can’t afford to buy Samah a laptop. This laptop will help her access online resources related to her field of study and she can perform better at exams, do her assignments, and understand the details of her major.

With the help of this laptop, Samah aspires to graduate faster than intended so she can get a job and help her family. You can see Samah in the photo with her laptop. 

This loan is special because:

It helps pay for school tuition for students from low-income families.
