Najah, a 52-year-old woman, is married with five sons and three daughters. Her husband is a guard at one of the buildings, making a decent salary. It is not enough to cover his family's needs. Najah wants to make some repairs to her house, such as painting. So she is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of painting her house and improving its condition. This will create better and healthier conditions at home for the family. Najah is photographed 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.
