Pashke's story

Pashke is an elderly woman from Lac city, a small city in north Albania. She is seen in the photo in her house. As you can see, she provides heating and heat for cooking with the woodstove she has in the middle of her dining/cooking room.

She lives only with her husband. They are both retired, and their only income comes from retirement pensions. Pashke plants different vegetables, but just to provide for their own consumption.

Pashke is asking for the first time for a Kiva loan to be able to pay for some personal healthcare costs. She has had continuous health problems and hasn't taken proper medical care, as she couldn't afford it. But, recently, her health situation has gotten worse, and she has started to fear.

She hopes for your understanding so she will recover her health and will be able to lead a normal life and activity.
