Mervat
Mirvat is 39 years old and married with one son. Her son is a student who is studying at a university. She and her family live in a humble house in Dir-El Balah.

Mirvat is requesting a loan from FATEN in order to pay to finish building their house. This loan will help Mirvat to purchase the needed construction materials to make the house ready to live in.

Mirvat is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.

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.
