Mohammad is a 27-year-old, single man from a small village near Jinen. He works as a laborer, for a very low wage. This wage barely covers his needs. He is looking to complete the building of his home, because he is preparing to get married, soon after finishing the house. He does not have enough money for this, so he needs a loan of $1,000 from FATEN. His home will be improved and be ready, so Mohammad and his future wife can live in it. He was photographed in front of his home.

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.
