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

A loan helped to connect the house to water and sewerage.

Dina's story

Dina is 33 years old. She is married and has a child. Because the financial situation in the family is a little bit difficult, the husband has to work abroad. All the household chores and the child are on Dina’s shoulders. However, she manages everything, even though she is employed. Recently she made some repairs in the house and bought new furniture in the child's room.

However, Dina's biggest dream is to connect the house to the aqueduct. It is very difficult for her to bring water from the well during the cold season because every time she has to carry her child with her, otherwise the child would be staying alone in the house. That’s why the child often takes a cold.

To create comfortable conditions in the house, as well as for her child's health, Dina is applying for a Kiva loan and hopes to connect the house to water and sewerage as soon as possible.
