Ibrahim is a 63-year-old married man and father of two children. He has worked as a journal reporter for the past 10 years. He loves his work and is talented at what he does.

Ibrahim is an Al Majmoua borrower (Kiva partner) of 2 cycles. His previous loan helped him a lot to cover a family need and he was in good standing repaying the borrower. Today, his second loan is also requested to cover a certain family need which is very important for his family members’ health. He will make necessary home maintenance to avoid rain leakage and will also paint where necessary.

Ibrahim is very proud and happy with his cooperation with Al Majmoua. This is because he has a limited salary that does not afford urgent, unplanned (yet necessary) things. Through his Al Mjamoua loans, however, he was capable of handling these.

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.
