Mohammad is a 55-year-old man; he is married with three sons and four daughters. He is a taxi driver and one of his sons is a worker with a decent salary. Mohammad wants to make some repairs to his house, such as painting and changing tiles. He also wants to purchase some new home furniture, such as living room furniture and bedroom furniture for his children. But the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay for these items, so he needs a loan of $2,000 from FATEN. When Mohammad gets the loan, he will be able to pay for the necessary repairs to his house and pay to purchase new home furniture. This will enable him to offer better living conditions for his family. Mohammad is photographed in a FATEN branch office.

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.
