Imteyaz is a 30-year-old woman who is married and the mother of three daughters and three sons. Imteyaz's house needs plastering and painting after the winter season. Imteyaz, who is photographed in the picture above, took out a loan from FATEN to pay for the repair expenses as her husband works in a factory in the city and receives a very decent salary, which won't let him cover the expenses all at once.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes.
