Saeda is a mother with three sons. Her husband is a Palestinian National Authority employee who gets a small salary, but that is not enough to cover the family's needs and costs.
Saeda is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the expenses needed to complete finishing her house, such as installing tiles, installing windows and doors, and painting. This will improve her family's house and provide her family 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.
