Donika's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to pay for her mentally disabled son's medical expenses.

Donika's story

Donika is a 51 year old woman from a deep mountain village in Korce, Albania. She is a devoted wife and mother to three adult sons, the older one, seen in the photo, was born with mental disabilities. Donika doesn't work because she has to take care of him all the time.

"Giving life, for the first time for me, to a sick child has been the hardest thing ever to happen in my life! Me and my husband experienced it badly at first, but over the years we realized we would be parents of a child who could not mentally grow up, and that would keep us always active and attentive in our efforts to look after him," said Donika during the interview.

Donika is seeking a Kiva loan to pay for her son's medical expenses because he has been suffering from health problems lately. Donika really hopes for your support in order to save her son from additional suffering.
