Ahmad
Ahmad, a 53-year-old electrician, lives with his wife and four children in Talluza, a Palestinian village located in the northern West Bank, 15 kilometers northeast of Nablus. According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics census, it had a population of 2,375 in 2007.

Ahmad has applied for a loan from Ryada to repair the cracked walls of his house through which water is seeping in. This loan will improve the family's living conditions, thereby providing them with a psychological boost.

Ahmad is very grateful to all who help him.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of Ryada’s efforts to reach areas of the West Bank which are underserved due to the political situation. Funds will be used to finance housing improvements in refugee camps and Areas B and C of the West Bank. The Palestinian Authority currently has limited to no authority in these areas, making it very difficult for individuals to acquire official construction and building permits. Without the necessary documentation, banks are unlikely to lend to these individuals. By supporting this loan, you are helping individuals overcome this challenge so that they can improve their living 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.
