Rodica's story

Rodica is 25 years old and is married. She is the mother of a 3-year-old daughter and is a housewife. Her husband works as a guardian at the local town hall. After the marriage, Rodica and her husband lived with her parents in the village. Being loving parents, they want a good education for their child, but in the village there is no kindergarten and school. That's why, from the collected money from the wedding they bought an apartment in the town. The new home requires heating connection and repair and they do not have the necessary sources to do this. Rodica founds out about Kiva loan and asks for help. The repair of the apartment will allow Rodica to move faster to the new home and her daughter will attend gladly the kindergarten that is near the house.
