Ahmad is a 26-year-old young man. He is married and a father to one son three months old.

Ahmad's wife is a housewife, while he is employed and earns a low salary. His salary is the only source of income to the family and is not enough to cover all their needs.

Ahmad lives in a clean and calm area, and his house is distinguished by being clean and tidy. Ahmad wants to provide comfortable and necessary furniture for his family, so he is requesting a USD 1,000 loan from FATEN to complete the price of purchasing dining room furniture. Taking this loan will offer to Ahmad and his family comfortable furniture 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.
