Abeer is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her son, Mohammad, who is over 18 years old, appears in her Kiva profile photo.

Abeer is a 46-year-old woman, who is married and a mother to two sons and two daughters. Her husband is a worker who gets a low salary that is not enough to cover the family's needs.

Abeer is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of making some necessary repairs to her house, such as painting and purchasing new living room furniture, in order to improve living conditions in her house. Taking this loan will offer to Abeer and her family comfortable furniture and suitable home conditions so they can enjoy living in their 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.
