Riham
Riham is a young woman from Jabalia Refugee Camp in Gaza Strip. She is married and a mother of one son. Riham took out a loan of $1,000 to purchase new home furniture instead of the old ones she has. Her husband is an employee with a decent salary. FATEN's loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, helped her buy better furniture.

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. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
