Saja is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in the picture taken in their new house in her Kiva profile photo.

Saja is a 21-year-old young married woman with one son and one daughter. Saja is a housewife and her husband is a worker who earns a small salary, which is hardly enough to cover all costs.

Saja wants to support her husband in improving their family's living conditions by speeding up the process of finishing their new house, so she is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing and installing new tiles in their new house. Taking this loan will allow Saja and her family to move to into their new house soon and improve their living conditions.

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.
