Ziad is a 56-year-old married man and a father to two sons and three daughters. He is a UN school teacher who gets small salary which does not cover all his family's needs.
Ziad wants to live in better home conditions with his family, so he is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of painting his house and adding new necessary decorations.

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.
