Eman is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo. The picture was taken inside their house.

Eman is a 26-year-old married young woman with no children yet. Eman and her husband are nurses at a local hospital, and both are getting low salaries which are not enough to cover all their needs.

Eman has a problem in her house. Especially in the winter season, the house ceiling is leaking water and this has led to damage to the house and its furniture. Eman wants to repair the leaking water problem at her house especially now that it is the winter season, so she is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing the necessary materials and hiring workers. Taking this loan will fix their house's ceiling leaks and offer to Eman and her husband healthy and suitable home conditions, 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.
