Adlah wants to complete two rooms in her house by installing tiles, installing windows and doors, painting, etc., but the amount of money she has isn't enough to pay, so she needs a loan of $3,000 from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN). When Adlah gets the loan, she will pay the expenses to finish the two rooms and live with her family in better home conditions.
Adlah is a conservative woman, so her husband Khaled is photographed instead.

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.
