A loan of $1,275 helped to purchase new home furniture.


Ghazaleh's story

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

Ghazaleh is a 43-year-old woman who is married with one son. Her husband is employed, buy gets a low salary that is not enough to cover the family's expenses.

Ghazaleh is requesting a youth loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of purchasing new home furniture such as bedroom furniture for her son and living room seats. This will offer her family better and more suitable home furniture and will let them live in better conditions.

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.
