Rana is a 29-year-old married woman with one son. Her husband is a worker who earns a small salary, which is barely enough to cover the family's needs.
Rana wants to support her husband in completing their new house, so she is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of painting the house and installing tiles. This loan will enable Rana and her husband to create suitable home conditions and enjoy living in their new 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.
