Parid's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy some new appliances for his house so his wife and his mother will find it easier to work with them.

Parid's story

Parid has been able to significantly improve his family's living conditions thanks to the previous Kiva loan. He hopes to find your support one more time so he will be able to also replace the old appliances in his house, which consume too much energy and do not perform properly. This way his wife and his mother will also find it easier to use them. It is the third time that Parid is asking for a Kiva loan. With his first-time loan, he paid for a master's degree for himself, which enabled him to have a better salary at his job. Parid is very thankful to all Kiva lenders as you enabled him to not only provide more for his family, but also to improve their living conditions.
