Kareema is a 50-year-old woman. She is married with two sons and two daughters. Her husband has a pension salary from the Palestinian National Authority. Kareema wants to improve her family life positively by purchasing new home furniture such as bedrooms, living seats, etc in order to live in better conditions. But the amount of money she has isn't enough to pay so she needs to take a loan of $3,000 from FATEN. When Kareema has the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, she will be able to pay for new home furniture and that will affect positively to change her family life for the better. Kareema is a conservative woman, so her husband is photographed instead in the FATEN 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.
