Abir
Abir, a 34-year-old married woman, has been printing books from her house since 1999 and supplements her income by working as a tutor. Because her house is her working place, she needs to keep it in good repair to receive her students.



Abir is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to help her husband in fixing their house ceiling and buying oil necessary to stay warm during this winter season. Abir hopes to expand her printing business and open a small office in the future. She will try her best to save as much as she can to make her dream come true.

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.
