Rana is a young woman of 35 years, who is married to her husband Morad, with no children yet. Rana prefers not to have her photo published online, so Morad appears in her Kiva profile photo, pictured next to their house.

Rana wants to live with her husband in better home conditions, such as paint and new windows. Both Rana and her husband are employed but get low salaries, which are not enough to cover these repairs, so she is requesting a $3,000 USD loan from FATEN. This loan will offer to Rana and her husband comfortable and suitable home condition and so they can enjoy living in the house.

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.
