Hiba is a 28-year-old young woman. She is married with no children yet. Her husband, Abdullah, works in agriculture, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income to the family.
Hiba wants to improve her home's living conditions by changing its old doors and windows, so she is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing and installing new windows and doors to her house. This will offer to Hiba and her husband suitable home conditions and enable them to enjoy living in their 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.
