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

A loan helped to connect her house to the aqueduct and sewer.

Adela's story

Adela is 39 years old and lives in Drochia town. She is divorced and has two children: a boy of 14 and a girl of 19 years old. Her ex-husband mistreated her in front of the children and often drove her away from home, which is why Adela decided that it is better to leave him than to endure. Two years ago, Adela found out that her daughter had a head tumor and she needed a lot of money for medical expenses. She overcame all the hardships alone because her husband did provide moral or financial support.

Adela has decided to make her life a little bit easier and create some comfortable living conditions. She dreams that before winter she will be able to connect the house to the aqueduct and sewer. She's not dared to spend money on this before because she wanted to ensure she had money for her daughter's medical treatment.

To create a comfortable household and improve her children's health, Adela applies for a Kiva loan and hopes to connect the house to water and the sewer as soon as possible.
