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

A loan helped to connect his grandmother's house to water and sewerage.

Vadim's story

Vadim is 33 years old and is not married. He works in the IT field, and from his childhood he grew up with his grandparents. The grandparents gave him love and wisdom, so Vadim became a person with a good soul.

Now, when the grandpa is not alive and his grandma is sick, Vadim is her only support. He takes care of her, supplying with food, buying firewood, maintaining the house and keeping the yard clean.

Due to the fact that Vadim has a job with an unstable working chart, he cannot live with his grandma, but he visits her very often.

However, his grandma needs to bring daily water from the well alone. She makes a great effort because she has sick feet.

In order to make her life easier, Vadim decided to connect her house to water and sewerage.

That is why he is applying for a Kiva loan. He hopes that by the cold time of the year his grandmother's house will be connected to the aqueduct and sewerage.
