Muhammad is a young man from Gaza city in Gaza Strip. Muhammad is married and a father of one daughter who is three years old. Muhammad and his small family moved to a new house with an extra room. The house needed painting and the water network needed fixing. Muhammad came to FATEN and received a loan to help him cover those expenses. Muhammad is an employee and it will be easier for him to repay FATEN on a monthly basis than covering the expenses all at once.

Muhammad appears in the picture here in FATEN's 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.
