Aiyda is a 24-year-old young woman. She is married and has two sons and one daughter. She lives in Jabalia refugee camp located in Gaza Strip in Palestine. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. Aiyda wants to improve her family life conditions by purchasing new home furniture, but the amount of money Aiyda has isn't enough to pay, so she needs to take a loan from FATEN of $1,500. When Aiyda gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, she will be able to purchase new home furniture and live with her family in healthy, comfortable home conditions. Aiyda is a conservative woman, so her husband is photographed instead 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.
