Nidal is a 23-year-old single young man. He is a construction worker who enjoys a good reputation among people. He gets a salary, but not enough to cover his needs and to complete finishing his house.
Nidal is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of completing his house from painting and installing tiles to improving the house's condition. This will ensure a suitable home for Nidal to live in with his family in the coming future.

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.
