Rabije's story

Rabije is 47 years old and a married mother of two children, 20 and 25 years old. She lives with her husband and their grown-up children in an old flat, which was built during the communist regime, 40 years ago! This used to be her parents-in-law house; since Rabije and her husband can't afford to buy a new one, they are living here and are planning to make some repairs. First of all, they want to insulate the house, in order to stop all rain water paths into their home. Then, they want to buy some new furniture, because the existing ones are very damaged.

Rabije works in a kitchen in a small restaurant in the centre of the city. Even though the work can be quite demanding, she feels fulfilled in knowing that people really enjoy her dishes.

Rabije and her family rely on the goodwill of Kiva lenders. They will highly appreciate the support and will make the payments on time.
