Hiba, 28, is the mother of one son. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary.
Hiba wants to make some repairs to their old house such as painting, changing tiles, installing lights, etc. in order to create better and more comfortable living conditions for her family. The amount of money she has isn't enough to pay for the repairs, so she needs to take a loan from FATEN.
Getting this loan will help Hiba to improve the condition of her old house by making the necessary repairs. This will enable Hiba to renew her old house and enjoy living with her family in better conditions.

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.
