A loan of $1,900 helped to purchase new home furniture.

Eman's story

Eman is a 24-year-old young woman. She is married and has no children yet. Her husband is employed, but gets a low salary that is not enough to cover life's costs.

Eman is requesting a youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing necessary home furniture such as living room seats, dining room furniture, etc., in order to improve the house's condition. This will offer to Eman and her husband better and suitable home living conditions.

Eman is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband, Shareef, appears in her Kiva profile photo.

About this loan product:
FATEN offers loans that are customized for Muslim borrowers. A key principle of Islam is the prohibition of charging interest on a loan. This prohibition is based on the belief that money is only a medium of exchange and has no value in itself. In order to offer loans in a manner that is consistent with borrowers' values, FATEN charges 0% interest on this loan. However, FATEN does charge a servicing fee to cover its costs. The loan amount you see listed on Kiva includes both the principal loan and the loan servicing fees. As with all Kiva loans, you should expect to have your funds returned to you according to this loan’s repayment schedule. For more information on lending in the Muslim world, please click here.
