Mustafa is a 35-year-old, married man, from Qalqilia city.

Mustafa works as a worker with a low wage. This wage is barely enough to cover the family needs.

He is looking to improve his home, especially the bedroom, the bathroom, and the kitchen. He does not have enough money for this, so he needs a USD loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN). His home will be improved and be ready, so Mustafa and his wife will live in it.

Mustafa 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.
