Hanem is a 32-year-old young woman. She is married and has one son. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary.

Hanem wants to purchase new and necessary home appliances such as a stove, refrigerator, etc. but the amount of money she has isn't enough, so she needs to take a loan for $2,000 from FATEN. When Hanem gets the loan, she will be able to purchase what she needs for necessary home appliances so she can provide her family with better living conditions.

Hanem is a conservative woman, so her husband Mohammad is photographed instead.

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.
