Widad is a 41-year-old woman. She is a mother to three sons and one daughter. She is a housewife, and her husband and her elder son are workers with low salaries.
Widad wants to share responsibility with her husband to completely finish their house, so she is requesting a loan from FATEN to cover the cost of installing tiles, windows and doors to the house. Taking this loan will create for Widad and her family suitable home conditions, so they can enjoy living in their new 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.
