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

Iman is a 25 year-old married woman from a small village called Awartah near Nablus city. She lives in a small house with her husband and two sons. Her husband works as a paint agent. He gets a good income but it is not stable because it is seasonal work.

Iman and her husband would like to improve the home conditions by doing some decorations and by expanding it. They have requested a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help them to pay the costs of expanding the home and improving it. Iman and her family will enjoy living in their home in better 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.
