For cultural reasons, Nariman prefers that her photo not be on the Internet. Thus the photo is of her father, AbdelJaleel.

Nariman is a Palestinian young woman. Her father is employed and her elder brother is a worker; both are getting low salaries, which are not enough to cover the family's needs.

Nariman wants to share her family's costs in changing the living room furniture to be more comfortable, so she is requesting a USD 500 loan from FATEN to share the cost of purchasing new living room seats. Taking this loan will offer to Nariman and her family comfortable furniture so she can improve living conditions in the family's house and enjoy living in it.

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.

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.
