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

A loan helped to finance her second year of baccalaureate.

Elene's story

Elene received her first loan from Kiva to cover her higher education expenses for the full course of her bachelor's degree. Then she returned the amount of three academic years, and now Elene still requires financial support to meet the second-year cost. Elene studies sciences and arts at Ilia State University.

She is a favorite student due to her organized behavior, high academic presence, and great sense of responsibility. She studies hard for the opportunity to find a stable and well-paying job to make a successful future career for herself.

Elene is a talented young woman and very motivated to study well. She hopes for your kindness.
