An FHA loan is insured by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal agency within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The FHA does not loan funds to borrowers, rather, it provides lenders with security with mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. The FHA and their loan programs are formed to benefit low-to-moderate income consumers help meet credit requirements if they otherwise would not.

Typically, a buyer has to pay less of a down payment on an FHA-insured loan, while the rates remain standard market rates. The loan programs that the FHA offers are excessively beneficial to purchasers with less starting income.
