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

A loan helped to make some badly needed repairs to her house so that this lonely woman will have a safer shelter during the upcoming rainy season.

Fize's story

Fize is a divorced lady from Elbasan city. She lives alone in a small house which needs some urgent repairs before the upcoming rainy season.

"During last winter, a part of the roof collapsed, but thanks God it was the ending of the rainy season at the time. Furthermore, I didn't have any savings to make the repairs, so I let it so for all the next period. But it really needs to be prepared; otherwise all the rain will go inside the house!" said Fize, desperately, during the interview.

Fize works in a factory, where she receives $250/month. She plans to pay the loan installments by cutting every possible extra expense, so that she will have a safer and warmer shelter for herself.

Fize thanks you all for the support and wishes all the best to all Kiva lenders for supporting people in need like her.
