Alaa is a 29-year-old man. He is newly married and works with the rest of his family in agriculture, specifically in olive trees. This has been a profitable project, but there is not enough to cover all the costs.

Currently, Alaa is preparing to live in his new house with his wife. But due to a money shortage, some of the work has been stopped for awhile. So he is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to continue the house by installing new windows and doors.

Taking this loan will offer Alaa and his wife 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.
