Vjollca is in her early thirties and married. Her three children are young and range from six to four years old. She is living in the Ashkali community in Kosovo. They live in a small town under extremely poor and unhealthy conditions. Her family owns a small old house. They have very old windows and doors, which need renovation so the family can live a normal life.

Vjollca's husband provides woodcutting services for heating in his community. Through his work, he tries to generate income for her family. The money he generates through his work is not enough to pay for renovation of windows and doors.

For the first time, Vjollca requests a loan from KosInvest to buy windows and doors for her house repair. After repairing the house, Vjollca will be able to create better living conditions for her family.

She is very thankful to all Kiva lenders for the help!

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.
