Abbass is a 36-year-old married man, living in a village in the Bekaa valley with his wife. He is employed in an industry where he is in charge of the general maintenance of the machines, and has been working in this field for 8 years now. His wife is currently unemployed, which makes him the only financial provider of the family. His revenue does not allow him to provide enough care and attention to a potential child, which is why he decided to contact Al Majmoua. In fact, he needs to acquire a loan that would help him purchase construction material which he will be using in building his house. This will probably allow him and his wife to be able to have children in a better environment. As for the future, Abbas wishes to open up his own business.

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.
