Seema is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.

Seema is a 24-year-old young woman. She is married and a mother to one son and one daughter. Her husband is a worker who earns a low salary, not enough to cover all the family's needs and costs.

Seema is requesting a USD 1,500 loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of repairing her house, such as painting and changing doors and windows. Taking this loan will offer Seema and her family suitable living conditions in their house, so they can enjoy their living.

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.
