Taghrid is a 29-year-old married, mother of three children. She has been working as a tutor at home for the last eight years.

She enjoys her works a lot. She especially enjoys educating, and that at the same time she is taking good care of her house and family members.

She is applying for a youth loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, in order to complete necessary maintenance to her house's rooftop, to keep her house a healthy living place for her children, before the winter season. Most of the Palestinian Camps are suffering from such unhealthy living homes; which she is working hard not to let her children face at all.

Taghrid is sharing the full responsibility of their house's needs with her husband, which makes her feel happy, comfortable and trustful. She hopes that one day she will be financially capable of moving out of the camp, just like some other Palestinian refugees who got this chance.

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.
