Mohammad is a 61-year-old man. He is a father to four sons and two daughters; their ages are between 17 and 33 years old.

Mohammad is a taxi driver. He takes internal requests and has a good reputation among customers. His business has been profitable, but as it is the only source of income to the family, more support is needed to cover the costs and the family's needs.

Mohammad has completed construction of his house, and now he wants to finish it by installing tiles and windows. He is requesting a loan of 2,000 USD from Faten for this purpose.

Taking this loan will offer Mohammad and his family suitable home conditions so they can enjoy living in their new house. Mohammad is photographed in the location of his new 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.
