Lutfi, 38, is married and has three children between the ages of 3 and 9. Currently, two of them go to school. Lutfi works as policeman with a very low salary and is the main income source for his family.
During the rainy season and wintertime, they have a serious problem with their house. The windows and doors leak and are not insulated properly. For a long time he could not do the necessary renovation to his home.
Now Lutfi is requesting a loan for 800 euros to buy new doors and windows and to renovate another room to enjoy.
This loan will improve the living conditions for his family and help to keep them healthy and warm in the upcoming winter season.
In the future he hopes for better days. His goal is to give children a better education.

Lufti and his family are grateful to Kiva lenders for improving their living conditions!
