Jalldyze
Jelldeze is married and has three children. Her family lives in one of the ethnic minority communities of Kosovo. Typically those who live within this community live under extremely poor and unhealthy conditions. Usually children wake up very early in the mornings and go to the trash containers looking for food.

Jelldeze's family always feels cold and gets sick in winter due to the cold weather conditions. This is primarily because they have a serious problem with their home's windows and doors. Her house needs an urgent renovation to improve the insulation so the family can live a healthy and normal life.

Jelldeze is requesting a loan, which she will use to renovate her house and to buy new doors and windows. She hopes this loan will improve the health of her family.

More information about this loan

This loan will support the economic aspirations of minority people in Kosovo. Roma people and ethnic Serbians have historically faced a tremendous amount of hardship in Kosovo, and are still socioeconomically and politically vulnerable.

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

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. 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.
