Maria's story

Maria is 61 years old and lives in Telenesti. She is married and is already retired. All her life, she has invested in the studies of the three daughters who are married and have their own families.

The house they have built needs capital repairs, but the most serious problem at the moment is the bad stove that creates problems during winter. Maria has five grandchildren who often come to visit her during the summer. In the winter, Maria's home does not heat up evenly, And, because the stove is defective, it smokes up the whole house.

Maria's husband is a farmer and his income is seasonal, Mary's pension is not very big, so she is appealing to Kiva.

Putting in a modern heating system: boiler, radiators, pipes and a modern stove will save the family's money currently spent on wood. The whole house will be warmed, and Maria's grandchildren will be able to come to the feasts in the winter.
