Jamalat has an amount of money which is not enough to pay for the housing improvements, so she needs to take a loan from FATEN. Getting this loan will enable Jamalat to pay for repairing her house and adding another room to her house. The loan will allow her to live with her family in better housing conditions. Jamalat is a conservative woman, so her husband is photographed, instead, in the picture.

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.
