Fayza wants to purchase new home furniture such as bedroom furniture for her children and living room furniture in order to positively improve her family life. The amount of money she has isn't enough to pay for this so she needs to borrow a loan of $1,000 from FATEN. When Fayza gets the loan, she will be able to positively change her home by purchasing new home furniture and this will provide her family with better living conditions. Fayza is a conservative woman, so her husband is photographed instead 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.
