Nafetha and her husband are photographed in the picture.

Nafetha is a 53-year-old woman. She is married and a mother with five sons and two daughters. One of her daughters has a beauty salon, which has been a profitable project, but also needs more support to cover the family's needs.

Nafetha is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing new home furniture such as living room and bedroom furniture, instead of the very old furniture she has. Taking this loan will offer to Nafetha and her family comfortable home furniture and create to them suitable home 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.
