Mirjana
Mirjana is a 31-year-old mother of two young children. She lives in a minority community. Mirjana works in a prison as a guard, and her husband works for the electric company. They have tried to save money, but even so they could not manage to renovate their house, because they always had something to do that they needed money for, in their daily life.

Now Mirjana is requesting a loan, which she will use to buy materials for renovating the house and to pay the workers. This loan will help her to improve the living conditions for her family, and to offer a better life to her children. She hopes to offer a better education to her children, in the future. She wants to thank all Kiva lenders for their support!

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. During the 1998-1999 war, the fighting displaced 250,000 people. Among those displaced were an estimated 80-90% of the region’s Roma population. Today, Roma and ethnic Serbians living in Kosovo still face discrimination and are excluded from many aspects of society, including fair political representation and high rates of unemployment. By supporting this loan you are helping provide opportunity to marginalized populations.
