Yosra is a Palestinian woman, married with one son and one daughter. Her husband and her son are employed with decent salaries. Yosra wants to make repairs to some parts of her house: the kitchen and the bathroom. These repairs include changing tiles, installing windows and doors, etc, but the amount of money Yosra has isn't enough to pay, so she needs to take a loan of $3,000 from FATEN. When Yosra gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, she will be able to repair her house, improve her daily life and offer better living conditions to her family. Yosra 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.
