Mira's story

Mira is a 46-year-old widowed member of the vulnerable Roman community living in the cold city of Korca. She has had Kiva lenders' support previously to pay for some health care for her elderly mother, who now thanks to you and God feels better! Mira lives with her son and her elderly mother in a very old house that urgently needs some repairs. "It is so cold inside our house that we fear to fall asleep because we can freeze during the freezing cold of the night hours!"said Mira desperately. Mira works very hard to provide for her family, she works as a cleaner for two families who pay her $40 each per month, and during the afternoon, for $60 a month, she takes care of a retiree who lives alone. She also receives economic assistance of $150/month for her disabled mother. Mira is requesting your financial support to repair the roof of her house so she will provide a warmer shelter for her family.
