Mahammad is 53 years old and lives with his wife, two children, and pensioner mother.

For 20 years, Mahammad has been working as a welder. He provides welding services with his tractor; his activity is a mobile service. With the profit from his welding service, Mahammad meets his family's needs. With the accumulated profit from his service he dreams to buy a new tractor because his tractor is worn.

But today he has applied for the loan to make repair works at his house. The house the family lives in has deteriorated over the years and needs some urgent repairs. So he is requesting a loan of AZN 1,600 to purchase building and insulation materials such as bricks, planks, and fiberglass. Using these materials, he will repair his house, thus enabling his family to live in a comfortable and warm place in the winters. Mahammad is a very hardworking individual who strives for a better future.

About Housing Loans

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.
