Taha is a young Palestinian man; he is engaged and preparing to get married soon. He is a worker and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover his wedding expenses and complete finishing his house.

Taha is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of finishing and improve the house, such installing tiles and installing windows and doors. This will improve the house's condition and enable Taha to prepare well for his wedding and enjoy living in house with his coming wife.

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.
