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

Sana is a 42-year-old married woman. She is a mother with seven children: five sons and two daughters. Sana and her husband and children live in a humble house in a small village called Attel near Tulkarm city. Sana's husband is a worker in a bakery in the city. He earns a low income which is not enough to cover all the expenses for the family's needs.

Sana and her husband would like to complete their new home and live in it, but they do not have enough liquidity to pay the costs of completing it. Sana took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help Sana to purchase construction materials to complete the family's new home so they can enjoy living in a comfortable place.

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.
