Sawsan is a 44-year-old woman who is married with three sons and one daughter. She is a school employee with a decent salary.

Sawsan wants to improve her house conditions such as changing windows, installing doors, etc., but the amount of money she has isn't enough to pay, so she needs to take a loan amount of $1,500 from FATEN. When Sawsan gets the loan, she will be able to pay for these expenses and make all the necessary improvements to her house. This will enable her to offer better home living conditions to her family. Sawsan 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.
