A loan of $2,000 helps to support his family by buying raw materials to rebuild his original home he lost.

Adel’s story

Adel, who appears in the photo, is a 50 years old and from Rafah City, in the Gaza Strip. Adel has found work in the public sector, but his income is not enough to support his family’s basic needs. Adel’s family home was destroyed in the 2014 conflict in Gaza. While a quarter of homes in Gaza were either destroyed or damaged during the latest fighting, the rebuilding efforts have been dreadfully slow due to the ongoing seige on Gaza and the resulting limited access to basic construction materials. Adel came to Palestine for Credit and Development FATEN for a loan to support his family by buying raw materials to rebuilds his original home he lost. He hopes you will help and fund his loan.
