Hedayah is a 22-year-old single woman. She is living in a humble house with her brothers. Hedayah's two brothers work as employees in a local company and receive low incomes. She is applying for a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to finish building the family’s new home, by buying windows and doors. This loan will afford Hedayah and her family better living conditions and enable them to enjoy living in their new house. Hedayah is conservative, so her brother is shown in the 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.
