Zaher is a 39-year-old single man from Jericho. He has his own business selling electrical home appliances. He is a worker on a low wage that barely cover his needs. He is looking to complete his new home. He does not have enough money for this, so he needs a loan of $3000 from FATEN. His home will be completed and be ready, so Zaher and his future wife will live in it. He is pictured 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.
