Lina is a 44-year-old married mother of two children. She is employed in a center for handicapped children and has taken care of their mental and educational development since five years ago. Though her income is low, and her work requires a lot of patience and perseverance, she is devoted to her job. Her husband works in the sales department of a store. Both her children are enrolled in private schools, which means that she and her husband have to pay tuition. She decided to contact Al Majmoua for a second time in a row because she needs financial support to maintain her house's bathroom. She cannot afford to do it with her own salary. In the future, Lina wishes to open her own center just like the one she works in so that she can provide the best care and education to disabled children.

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.
