Rubije's story

During the past three years, Rubije, who lives in a village, has been operating a grocery store. Since she and her family relocated to the current village, they do not own any land where they can plant something or keep some animals.

Rubije is 54 years old, she is married and a mother of three adult sons, two of them live in Italy, while her youngest son works seasonally in Greece and lives with her. Rubije is a very devoted wife and mother.

Her elderly husband suffers from serious health problems because of his old age, which makes his life difficult and causes a lot of discomfort. Doctors have recommended that he requires some medication and treatments in order to heal.

Rubije is seeking a Kiva loan in order to pay for the medication and treatment expenses of her husband.

She hopes that with your generosity, she will be able to help her elderly husband feel better soon and enjoy a higher quality of life.
