Feriyal is a Palestinian woman. She is married and a mother to five daughters. Her husband is a painter and gets a low salary, which is the only source of income to him and not enough to cover all the family's needs.

Feriyal and her family are suffering from humidity and damp in their house that may cause to them shortness of breath and other minor diseases, so Feriyal is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of repairing her house from humidity. This will help to remove humidity from Feriyal's house and offer to her family clean 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.
