Deena is 25 years old, married and mother to one son and one daughter. Her husband is a worker whose low salary is not enough to cover the family's needs.
Deena and her husband have been building their own new house and now they want to complete the project by painting the inside and installing electrical extensions, among other improvements.
Due to a money shortage, Deena is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to cover these costs. Taking out this loan will enable Deena and her family to move into their house soon and enjoy living in suitable conditions.

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.
