Brijette is a 52 years old woman. She has a decent pension salary and she owns a kindergarten. She wants to make some necessary repairs to her house such as: painting, changing windows and doors, installing tiles, etc. However, the amount of money she has isn't enough to pay for the renovations. She needs to take a loan amount of $3,000 from FATEN. When Brijette gets the loan, she will pay to make these necessary repairs to her house and be able to live in better home conditions. Brijette is shown in the photograph.

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.
