A loan helped to make some repairs to his family's shelter so it will be safer and warmer.


Demirali's story

Demirali is a 69-year-old member of the vulnerable Egyptian community, living alone with his elderly wife in Korçe city. They are the parents of two adult children, who are both married and living abroad with their families.

Demirali and his wife live in a one-room house; they have rented the other part of the house for a monthly income of $150. "During the communism era, we members of the vulnerable communities were given first floor apartments, as the more uncomfortable ones. Now, we make use of them by adapting and renting part of the house as shops! Thank God we have this opportunity, because we have very low retirement pensions."-said Demirali during the interview.

Demirali is asking for a Kiva loan to make some repairs to his family's shelter so it will be safer and warmer. "We have not made any repairs to our home in years; we hope that with your support we will be able to do some insulation and plastering where needed!"-said Demirali hopefully.
