Samer's photo is next to his house.
Samer is a 30-year-old young man. He is married and a father to one son. His wife is a housewife and he is a worker across the border who gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover all the costs.

Samer has finished building their house and now he wants to complete the finishings of it, so he is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of installing tiles, windows and doors.

Taking this loan will create suitable living conditions for Samer and his family and enable them to enjoy living in their 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.
