Amneh is a 46-year-old woman and a mother with three sons and three daughters. Her husband is a worker who earns a low salary which is not enough to cover the family's needs.
Amneh is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the expenses of expanding and improving her house's condition, such as: adding new rooms to the house, painting and installing tiles and windows and doors. As her family members are getting bigger and need to feel more comfortable at home, this will offer to the family better 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.
