Fidaa' is a 21-year-old woman who is married. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee having a decent salary, and the family has got another source of income from raising livestock animals and selling them. Fidaa' wants to purchase new home furniture such as bedroom, living-room seats etc., but the money she has isn't enough, so she needs to take a loan in the amount of $1,000 from FATEN.

When Fidaa' gets the FATEN loan, that is repaid on a monthly basis, she will purchase new home furniture and live in comfortable healthy home conditions. Fidaa' is a religious woman, so her husband is photographed instead of her.

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.
