Mustafa is the father of two daughters and two sons. He is an employee. He lives in his parents' house, since they passed away and left the house to him. The house is relatively small; therefore, Mustafa took out a loan from FATEN to build an additional room for the girls. The additional room will help the family have a more organized house and give privacy for the girls.

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.
