Waheed is 40 years old, married and the father of two sons and one daughter. He is employed but earns a salary which is too small to meet his family's needs. He is requesting a loan for $1,000 from FATEN to help cover the cost of painting his house and improving its condition. This will allow him to provide his family with a healthy and suitable place to live. We see Waheed here in his home.

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.
