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


A loan helped to pay for her daughter's post graduate certification as a teacher of English language so that she can give courses of English language to beginners.


Merjeme's story

Merjeme is seen in black as she is mourning her husband, who passed away recently.

She is back asking for your support again for her daughter's education. She wants to pay for her daughter's post graduate certification as a teacher of English language so that she can give courses of English language to beginners. Her daughter has been able to start her job as a teacher only thanks to your support. Merjeme hopes that this time she will enable her daughter to give courses and to make an extra income for the family.

Merjeme lives with her son and her daughter in a small apartment in the city of Korce. Merjeme works as a cleaner, while her son hasn't found a stable job. Since her husband suffered an accident and became unable to work, Merjeme has been the head of the house and faced difficulties in raising her children all alone. She hopes her daughter will be an added support in the future!
