Rami is a 31-year-old man, married with one son. He is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. Rami wants to make some necessary repairs to his house, such as changing tiles, but he doesn't have enough money to pay for it, so he needs to take out a loan of $1,200 from FATEN. With the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will be able to pay for making the repairs he needs in his house. This will enable him to provide better living conditions for his family.

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.
