Mohammad is 25 years old, single and works as a nurse at a local hospital. His salary is low and not high enough to cover his costs. He has purchased an apartment and is applying for this loan to cover the cost of completing its construction, including installing a kitchen and some decorations. He is requesting a loan for $1,500 from FATEN to cover the costs of this work, which will give him a suitable home and improve his living standards. Here we see Mohammad inside his apartment.

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.
