Nael, age 30 and unmarried, works in a bakery. At present he earns a very low salary that is not enough to cover his cost of living.

Nael is pictured in his new house. He wants to prepare his new house so that he will be able to get married. He is therefore requesting a 3,000 USD Youth loan from FATEN, which will cover the cost of installing tiles and painting the house.

Receiving this loan will enable Nael to complete his house, which will then cause him to be able to offer suitable home conditions to a prospective bride. He hopes to marry soon and looks forward to living with his wife in his new and finished 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.
