Eyad is a 38-years-old man. He is married and has two sons and four daughters. He is a municipality employee with a decent salary. Eyad wants to improve his family life conditions by purchasing new home furniture such as: bedroom furniture for his children, living room seats, and others, but the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay for this purchase so he needs to take a loan out in the amount of $1,200 from FATEN. When Eyad gets the loan which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will be able to purchase the home furniture his family needs and to provide his family with better and healthier living conditions. Eyad is photographed in the picture in a 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.
