The FHA is the Federal Housing Administration, which is a federal agency in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) - if your loan is an FHA-insured loan, it means it is secured by them. No part of the loan is provided by the FHA; what the FHA does is make sure that the mortgage is insured in case the borrower doesn't pay their loan. Low-income and moderate-income borrowers benefit from an FHA-backed loan; the purpose of the Federal Housing Administration is to help credit-worthy buyers to meet expectations and necessities for lending agencies that they otherwise would not.
The rates on FHA loans are generally market rates, while down payment requirements are lower than for conventional loans. The loan programs that the Federal Housing Administration offers are incredibly helpful to buyers with less starting capital.
