Irina's story

Irina is a 35-year-old woman from the town of Cimislia, Moldova. She is married, has two children and lives in the house she inherited from her parents. Irina is the main breadwinner in her family, as her husband and one child are disabled. She works as a cleaning woman in one of the local schools. Her salary is small, but she does not complain because she is well acquainted with life’s hardships and takes them in stride.

Last year Irina started to renovate her house under her own power. Now she is asking for a loan through Kiva's field partner Smart Credit to buy and replace a door and five windows. The present ones are broken and allow the wind and cold to penetrate their house. With this loan Irina will have the possibility to save heat in her house especially in the cold season of the year and will improve living conditions for her family.
