Muhammad’s story

Muhammad is a 33-year-old man from Khan Younis, Gaza Strip. He is a married man who lives with his wife and three adorable children. He is the sole provider for the family, who rely on his income to make ends meet. He works in the public sector where he earns a low income that is barely enough for their basic needs.

He also has a store for electrical and plumbing equipment that is a second source of income for his family. He went to Palestine for Credit and Development (FATEN) to request a US Dollar loan to buy supplies and products for his store in order to increase his sales and his family income. He hopes you will help and fund his loan.

This loan is special because:

It complies with Islamic law by charging fees instead of interest.
