Shefqet is 42 years old and married. He has three children ranging in age from 10 to 16 years old, with the oldest one being treated in Greece for the past two years. He has been operating a construction business for the past eleven years and this activity keeps Shefqet busy because there is plenty of demand in this field in the northern region where he resides.
The tools and equipment that he has been using in this business so far have been primitive and to speed up the process and avoid injuries and particularly during the winter time; he plans of buying proper and new tools. This is the reason why he is requesting a Kiva loan to purchase them and hopes that lenders will help him financially.
