ICUF Impact: Mom of Six Buys a Home After Saving Through Our IDA Program
Kadiatu, a mother of six girls, recently found a place to call home thanks to ICUF and its partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Relocating from Liberia, she made it a priority in her house to put education before work. After applying for homeownership through Habitat for Humanity, she was able to receive matched savings through ICUF's IDA program, to help her reach her goal. With all but one of her daughters either in college or out of school, she is happy to have a place that they all can come home to.
