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

A loan helped to legalize the ownership of his family house so that it will belong to his family by law.

Eduard's story

Eduard is a hardworking man from north Albania. He is a devoted husband and father of two who tries his best every day to provide for his family. But life in north Albania, especially in his little town, has become very difficult. He works every day to receive at the end of the month only $300, while his wife receives $250. With this small amount, it is very difficult to deal with all the expenses and to leave something apart to invest in providing a better shelter for the family.

"Thanks to a previous Kiva loan I could make some repairs at my family shelter. Now I would like to legalize it, so it will be an asset for my children in the future!" said Eduard optimistically, during the interview.

Eduard thanks you all for the support and promises to pay every loan instalment on time!
