Eman
Eman is a 24-year-old young woman. She is married and has no children yet. Her husband is employed, but gets a low salary that is not enough to cover life's costs.

Eman is requesting a youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing necessary home furniture such as living room seats, dining room furniture, etc., in order to improve the house's condition. This will offer to Eman and her husband better and suitable home living conditions.

Eman is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband, Shareef, appears in her Kiva profile photo.

About this loan product:
FATEN offers loans that are customized for Muslim borrowers. A key principle of Islam is the prohibition of charging interest on a loan. This prohibition is based on the belief that money is only a medium of exchange and has no value in itself. In order to offer loans in a manner that is consistent with borrowers' values, FATEN charges 0% interest on this loan. However, FATEN does charge a servicing fee to cover its costs. The loan amount you see listed on Kiva includes both the principal loan and the loan servicing fees. As with all Kiva loans, you should expect to have your funds returned to you according to this loan’s repayment schedule. For more information on lending in the Muslim world, please click here.

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.
