Fatime's story

Fatime is a kindhearted woman from south Albania. She has worked as a kindergarten teacher for her all life until she retired 2 years ago. Even though she is retired, she continues taking care of children at her home. This way she can make a small income, as her retirement pension is very low, approximately $180/month.

Fatime lives with her husband, who is erector by profession, and her son. They live in a small well-arranged apartment. "I have always been very obsessed with my house. I wanted it to look always nice and be clean! Due to my job, I have always taken children to my home. This was a reason more for me to keep it as much clean as possible!" said Fatmie during the interview.

Fatime asked for Kiva lenders to support paying for some medical clinic expenses for herself. She wants to change her glasses and the denture as they are very old and very uncomfortable for her. This way she will have a clear sight and will be able to enjoy all kind of foods.
