Dawlat is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo.

Dawlat is a 39-year-old married woman and a mother to one son who is 3 years old. Her husband is employed and gets a low salary that is not enough to cover all the family's needs.

Dawlat wants to improve her family's home living conditions, so she is requesting a $2,000 USD loan from FATEN to cover the costs of painting the house and installing new windows.

Taking this loan will offer to Dawlat and her family suitable home conditions, 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.
