Wa'el is a 47-year-old man; he is married with no children yet. He is a Palestinian National Authority employee with a decent salary. Wa'el wants to make repairs to his house such as changing tiles, changing windows and doors, etc., but the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay, so he needs to take a loan of $3,000 from FATEN. When Wa'el gets the loan, he will be able to repair his house and offer his family better living conditions. Wa'el 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.
