Total loan: $1,850


Elbasan, Elbasan County, Albania / Housing

Fatmir's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for the needed fees to legalize his house so it will finally be his and his wife's, even by law.

Fatmir's story

During the 90s, most Albanians used to build houses on their land without first having permission from the state. At the time, this was considered to be something right by the vast majority of the population.

One of these cases is Fatmir. He wants to legalize his house now so it will be his, even by law. The fees are very high for legalizing a property. For this, Fatmir is hoping for Kiva lenders' support for the first time, to be able to pay for it and finally have his house as his property by law.

Fatmir lives with his wife. He does construction labour whenever he has the possibility. Together with his wife they practice different agricultural activities, mostly arboriculture.

Fatmir thanks all Kiva lenders for the support and wishes the situation created by Covid-19 ends as soon as possible for all countries.
