If your house loan is FHA insured, that means that it has been guaranteed by the Federal Housing Administration, which is underneath the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). No part of the loan is provided by the FHA; what the FHA does is make sure that the loan is secure in case the borrower doesn't pay their loan. The FHA and their loan programs are formed to benefit low-to-moderate income consumers help meet credit expectations if they otherwise would not.

Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. Purchasers with lower income or less starting capital to put down on a financial transaction benefit the most from FHA loan programs.
