Khadra is a Palestinian woman. She is married with four sons and three daughters. Her husband is a worker with a decent salary.

Khadra wants to complete finishing her house by installing tiles, windows and doors so as to live with her family in better home living conditions, but since her husband's salary is not sufficient to cover these expenses, she needs to take a loan from FATEN.

When Khadra gets the loan, she will be able to pay the expenses for finishing her house and installing tiles, windows and doors. That will allow Khadra and her family to live in comfortable and better house conditions, especially in the winter season. Khadra 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.
