Hona
Hona is a 38-year-old married woman living in the Ashkai community. She is a housewife caring for her six children who range in age from seven to 13 years old. Hona's husband works at a private company that manufactures tiles and other materials for toilets. His salary is very low and is not enough to cover the family's daily expenses and much-needed home renovations.

The family's house is extremely old and in poor condition, which exposes the family to unsanitary and unhealthy living conditions. Hona is requesting a loan to buy materials for the renovation of her home to ensure healthier and improved living conditions for her family. Hona is grateful to KosInvest- Kiva lenders for helping to improve her family's conditions and standard of living!
