Olfat has almost finished building her house and now she wants to finish it, so she is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of painting the house and installing windows and doors. Taking this loan will offer Olfat and her family suitable home conditions, so they will move to live in it soon, before the winter season is coming. Olfat appears in the photo with her husband Yasser and her younger son.

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.
