Sevdije is in need of a loan so that she can change the doors and windows before the winter comes. This loan will help her to keep her utility costs down and reduce expenses to keep the house warm during the winter. In addition, by addressing the insulation issues, she will be able to keep her family healthy and reduce the risk of illness and cold. Since she has five children, it is very difficult for her to secure the basic things for living not to mention being able to address improving living conditions to a standard that is acceptable.
“Without this loan we will have cold and problems with heating this winter as we had before,” claims Sevdije.
The loan will help them to have a better life with comfortable conditions and improve the quality of life to an acceptable standard. In the future she hopes to offer a better education for their children. Sevdije and her family want to thank all Kiva lenders!
