Ammar is a young man from Hebron. He is married and a father of one son. Ammar got married recently and couldn't furnish all the house, and as he has a baby now, he needs to prepare a room for him.

Ammar, who is photographed here, took out a loan from FATEN to purchase furniture for the baby's room, Ammar is employed and will be able to repay on a monthly basis rather than paying the cost of a room full of furniture all at once.

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.
