Mohammad is a young Palestinian man living in Zieta village. He owns a greenhouse where he grows many vegetables. His monthly average income is around 600 USD, which is considered around average, especially as he is living in a village instead of a city (where the cost of living is higher). Mohammad is planning to get married, so he is in the process of building his own house. The house is built, but he hasn't finalized the finishings so he has requested 2,000 USD from FATEN to finish preparing his house.

Mohammad appears in this picture taken at the FATEN office.

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.
