A loan helped to renovate the ceiling.

Marina's story

Marina is 27 years old and married with 2 children. She is pregnant with the 3rd one, and they expect a baby girl soon. The house she lives in is inherited from her parents, as her father died and her mother lives with them. The parents of Marina put cereals in the attic of the house. That’s why the ceiling in two rooms fell down. At the moment, the family together with the mother of Marina live in one room, and that is very difficult for 5 people. They managed to lay the wood, but they still have to plaster the walls and finish the work at least in one room. This will make it possible for Marina’s mother and the children to have a room.

Finding out about the Kiva loan, Marina decided to ask for help. As a result, the living conditions will improve for both Marina and the whole family.
