Khitam, who appears in the photo, is a 31-year-old married young woman and a mother to one son and two daughters. She is a housewife and her husband is employed and earns small salary, which is barely enough to cover the family's needs.

Khitam is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of making some improvements to her house such as painting, installing new windows and doors.

Taking this loan will offer Khitam and her family members a suitable home condition, so that 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.
