Sadije is forty-six years old. She is married and has two children, ages fourteen and twenty-six. Neither she nor her husband works at this time. In her family only her daughter works and she works in a cake shop. This wonderful and loving family lives in unacceptable conditions.

During the rainy season and in wintertime, they have a serious problem with windows and doors. Sadije’s family are requesting a loan in order to renovate their house and to buy windows and doors, replacing the old ones with new ones. This loan will help them to have better conditions for their lives.

Sadije is grateful to Kiva lenders for improving the family's living conditions and standard of living.
