Hanadi is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband Aqel appears in her Kiva profile photo, pictured in their house.

Hanadi is a young 32-year-old woman. She is married to Aqel and is a mother to two sons and two daughters, who are 1 to 6 years old.

Hanadi's husband is a worker who gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs and requests.

Hanadi wants to improve the condition of her family's house, so she is requesting a loan from FATEN to help her cover the costs of improving its condition, such as painting and installing electric extensions. This will give Hanadi and her family suitable living conditions in their home.

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.
