Lac, Lezhë County, Albania / Health

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

A loan helped to pay for a scheduled gall surgery for herself, so she will feel better and will enjoy a healthy life.

Marie's story

Marie is a 56-year-old lady from northern Albania. Due to a very difficult life and very heavy hard working she has been having a lot of health problems lately. Including kidney and gall problems. This has made her life very uncomfortable and causes her a lot of pain. Doctors have suggested her to undergo first a gall surgery and afterwards look for possibilities of treating the kidneys. Marie hopes to have Kiva lender support for the first time to be able to pay for her personal medical expenses. Even though she lives with her son and his family she doesn't want to be a burden for them and plans to pay the loan installment with her disability pension.

Marie usually wears a head scarf but she didn't want to be seen in the photo as an old lady. She wanted to have a good look in front of her possible supporters. Marie wishes all the best to all Kiva lenders and wishes Happy Easter to every one.
