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

A loan helped to improve his living conditions, especially during cold weather.

Abedin's story

Abedin is a 51-year-old man who lives with his wife and son. He wakes up every morning to collect plastic bottles from the streets and sell them to the recycling company. This is the only income for his family.

His house needs a lot of improvements; the windows are broken and doors do not close properly. From his income, it is impossible to save money to invest in his house.

He applied for 800 EUR loan from Kiva to change the windows and exterior door of his house. This loan will really help him and his family to improve their living conditions, especially during cold weather.
