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

Alaa is a married Palestinian woman from Tulkarm. She is a mother with two sons and one daughter. All of Alaa's children are in the school. Alaa's husband works as a laborer with a low wage which is not enough to cover all the family needs.

Alaa has requested a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help Alaa to pay the costs of repairing the family home since it is very old. This will offer the family better 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.
