Sara's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for scheduled leg surgery for herself, so she will recover her health soon and return to her normal activity.

Sara's story

Sara is a 56-year-old woman from Elbasan city. She is married and mother of two adult children, both married and living with their own families. Sara's husband has been disabled for more than 10 years and she is the only one who takes care of him.

Sara has been working as a cook since she was 18 years old. Doctors have told her that staying on her feet for prolonged hours has caused her this leg problem. She will require a surgery in order to get better and to recover her activity again. "My biggest fear is becoming disabled like my husband with no one to care for us," she said desperately during the interview.

Sara is seeking a Kiva loan in order to pay the healthcare costs of this leg surgery that she needs. She hopes that with your support she will recover quickly and be able to lead a productive and fulfilling life again.
