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


A loan helped a divorced mother to buy three beds for her little children to sleep in, so they will finally be able to sleep in proper beds rather than on the ground or on one sofa.


Fiqirete's story

Fiqirete is a strong 33-year-old mother of three little children. She got divorced from her husband three years ago, when her little child was only 1 year old. "He used to violate me physical and psychologically, and I supported all that for my children, so they won't grow without a father. But after he started to maltreat even our children. It was then when I decided to leave him and to start a new life only with my children!" Fiqirete said with beaming eyes during the interview.

Fiqirete works long hours as a bartender to provide for her little children. They are currently living in a small apartment which has only one single bed. Two of her children sleep in one bed, one on the sofa, and Fiqirete on the ground. She is hoping for Kiva lenders' support for the first time to buy three beds for her little children to sleep in, so they will finally be able to sleep in proper beds rather than on the ground or on one sofa. She also plans to insulate the house so it will be warmer and safer for her little ones.
