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

A loan helped to buy a car to make his job easier.

Radu's story

Radu is a 30-year-old man from the village of Condratesti, in the Ungheni region of Moldova. He is divorced and has a son and a daughter for whom he cares. Radu works as an installer of doors and windows in a company in Ungheni town. Radu's salary is the only source of income necessary for the maintenance and education of his children. Unfortunately, his salary is not high so he cannot accumulate some money to invest in what he needs. In order to make his job easier, he needs a car, which would help him a lot.

Radu decided to ask for a loan from Kiva to purchase the car to go to customers to pick up and deliver orders. As a result, he will increase his salary, which will help him create more decent conditions for his children.
