Olga's story

Olga is a 32-year-old woman from the Ungheni town of Moldova. She worked as a cook in a local kindergarten for seven years. She liked this job very much, but she needed to change her job.

Now, Olga works as a builder and manages to earn a better salary. She is married and has three daughters and a son. Two of them are students already and the other two go to the kindergarten. This family is big and very friendly. In addition, her husband works as a builder to earn good income for family maintenance. Olga obtained the inheritance house from the grandparents. This house, being old, needs investments. The cold season is approaching and Olga has decided to repair the stove, because it is defective.

Now, Olga needs a loan from Kiva to buy construction materials. This loan will give her the opportunity to repair the stove and create better living conditions for her family.
