Awad
Awad is 52 years old and he lives with his wife and his seven children in Gaza. He has a small grocery and this is the only source of income for his family.

His house was damaged by the war, so he applied for this loan to repair his house, especially the windows, which will help them to take a step forward. His dream is to educate his children and give them the best for their lives.

He is very grateful to everyone who helps him.

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.
