Bajram
Bajram is fifty-three years old and married. He comes from one of the Vulnerable Populations. He has four children between the ages of six and twenty-two years old. His wife is a housewife and stays at home with the children. They all live in a village in the southwestern part of Kosovo under very poor conditions.

Bajram is a very hardworking man trying to work a lot to get more income for his family. He is working as a guard and sometimes he will transport goods for other people. Life is not so easy for them as for most people that live in all Ashkali communities, living in poverty.

Bajram is requesting a loan in order to paint the inside and outside of his house. He hopes in the future to improve their living conditions in other ways.
Bajram and his family are very grateful to all Kiva lenders!

More information about this loan

By supporting this loan you are helping provide opportunity to marginalized populations.

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.
