Sadeq, age 62, is a pensioner. He and his wife have raised four sons and seven daughters, and one of his sons is a worker with a decent salary.

Sadeq wants to improve the conditions of his house. Preparations for the winter season must be made, such as replacing the windows and purchasing a new space heater. He does not have the necessary funds for these necessities, so he is requesting a loan in the amount of $2,000 from FATEN. With the loan proceeds, he will prepare his house thoroughly for the winter season, allowing his family to experience better living conditions.

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.
