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

Aydah is a married woman from a small village, near Tulkarem City. She lives in a small house with eight sons and three daughters. Aydah's husband works in a blacksmith workshop and this is the only source of income for the family.

Aydah would like to complete the family's new home, so she took a USD loan from Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN). This loan will help Aydah to buy the construction materials needed to complete her 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.
