Mohammad is a 22 year old single man from Al-Nusairat. He has his own business which is to sell electrical home appliances. His business earns him a good income, but not enough.

He is looking to improve his home especially the bedroom, the bathroom and the kitchen. He does not have enough money for this, so he needs a loan of $1,500 from FATEN. His home will be improved and be ready so Mohammad and his future wife will live in it. He is pictured in front of his home.

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.
