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

Eman is a 31-year-old young woman, and she is a mother with two sons and one daughter. Her husband is a worker who gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's costs. Eman is requesting a loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing some necessary home appliances such as a stove and refrigerator. This will improve the family's home living 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.
