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

A loan helped to change the windows and doors of his house so he will be able to provide a safer and warmer shelter for his family, especially before the upcoming winter season.

Ligor's story

Ligor is a 51-year-old man from Lezha, a coastal city in North Albania. He is married and thanks God they could become parents for the first time only last year. In the photo, Ligor is holding his son in his arms.

During the interview, Ligor hopefully said, "All our savings used to go into medication and treatments so we could have a baby. This is why our house is in this situation. I want to do some insulating and replace the old windows and doors with new ones so my family will have a safer and warmer shelter before the upcoming winter season!"

Ligor is asking for Kiva lenders' support for the first time. He hopes to find your understanding. Ligor promises to pay every loan installment on time!
