Nikë's story

Nikë brought his family to their new, unfinished house as there they were safer than at their old house, right after the earthquake that hit Albania in November. With some savings that he had he bought the most needed items and he placed plastic to cover the space were there were supposed to be windows and doors. His family spent the entire winter at this house with the hope that the government would compensate them somehow for the damages of the earthquake, but nothing seems to be on the horizon. So he decided to ask for Kiva lenders' support to pay for the doors and windows of his new house so he will be able to provide a safer and warmer shelter for his family.

Nikë lives with his wife and two children. Nikë is retired, but he gives an immense contribution in the daily agricultural activity of their family, which is their main source of income.
