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


A loan helped to pay a debt he had during summer to partly finish his family house, the one that you can see behind him.


Gjergj's story

Gjergj is a 50-year-old man from a northern Albania village. He has been struggling all his life to provide for his family. He had more than 10 years in building the house you can see in the background on his own so he could provide a proper shelter for his family, but the money was never enough to do the roof, so he took a debt from one of his cousins last summer and finally moved into their own home with his family. He has not been able to pay the debt, and he really hopes for a Kiva loan to finally sleep in peace, as the idea of not being able to pay off debt is causing him a lot of stress.

Gjergj is married and lives with his wife and three children. They are very thankful for your support and wish you a wonderful Christmas and New Year season.
