Tamer is a 23-year-old single man who works in construction. He wants to repair his house internally, but his income is not sufficient to cover the repair costs. Therefore, he wants to take a loan of $3,000 from Kiva partner, FATEN, which can easily be repaid on a monthly basis.
By getting this loan, Tamer will be able to pay for necessary internal repairs, such as painting the walls, and enjoy better living conditions. Tamer is photographed in FATEN's branch.

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.
