Abeer is a 39-year-old woman. She is married and a mother to three sons and two daughters. She works in a store selling clothes and her husband is a carpenter; both are getting an income which is not enough to cover all the family's costs and the educational expenses.

Abeer is requesting a 2,500 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of completing her house, such as installing electric extensions and painting. This will enable Abeer and her family to move to live in their new house soon, which will improve the family's 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.
