Ishaq is a 56-year-old man. He is married and has five daughters. He works in a carpet sales store, receiving a decent salary. Ishaq wants to purchase new home furniture such as bedroom furniture and living room furniture to replace the old one in order to improve his family living conditions. However, the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay for this purchase, so he needs to take out a loan in the amount of $2,000 from FATEN. When Ishaq gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, he will be able to pay for the new home furniture which will fulfill his family needs and provide them with better and healthier life conditions. Ishaq is photographed in the picture.

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.
