Suha is a 37-year-old single woman. She works in data base entry and receives a low salary which is not enough to cover all her needs. Suha's father receives a low pension and lives with his family in a modest old house that needs some repairs.

Suha wants to contribute to some of the repair costs so she is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of installing new aluminum windows at her family's house.

This will improve the family's living conditions at home, especially during the winter season.

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.
