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

Sojod is a 21-year-old young woman. She is married and the mother of one son and one daughter. Her husband Issam is a painter who gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.

Sojod wants to live with her family in suitable home conditions, so she is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of making necessary repairs to her house in order to improve her family's living conditions in the house, such as painting and installing new electric extensions. Taking this loan will offer to Sojod and her family suitable home conditions, so the family can enjoy living in the house.

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.
