Issam is a 46-year-old married man. He is a father to three sons and one daughter; all of them are school students. Issam is a taxi driver who earns a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs and pay for education expenses.
Issam wants to improve his family's home living conditions, so he is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the cost of purchasing new living room furniture and bedroom furniture for his children in order to improve the living conditions in his house. Taking this loan will offer Issam and his family comfortable and suitable furniture so they can 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.
