Jehan is a 34-year-old young woman, married and has two sons and three daughters. She is a school teacher and her husband is employed as well, and both earn decent salaries. Jehan wants to make some repairs to her house such as changing windows and doors, and purchase some new furniture. Jehan doesn't have enough money to pay, so she needs to take out a loan of $2,000 from FATEN. When Jehan gets the loan, which is to be repaid on a monthly basis, she will be able to pay for repairing expenses and purchase new home furniture. This will help improve her house conditions and provide better living conditions for her family. Jehan appears in the picture above.

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.
