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

A loan helped to make repairs in her apartment, so that her family will have a safer and warmer home.

Mirjeta's story

Mirjeta and her family live in an apartment, that they rent at a very low price, which needs some repairs before the next rainy season. "My husband and I moved from our small village to the city of Bilisht to offer our two children more opportunities. We did not have enough savings to buy a house here, so we decided to rent a cheap one, so we could repair it and make it a more comfortable home. But life in the city is much more expensive than in the village, so we spent our savings soon after relocating here!", said Mirjeta during the interview. Mirjeta is asking for a loan to make some repairs in the apartment, mainly insulation, so that her family will have a safer and warmer home.

Mirjeta works in a clothes factory and her husband is a butcher in a meat-processing factory. Her son works as a waiter in a fast-food restaurant and her daughter works in customer service for a telecommunications company. The monthly family income is around $550.

Mirjeta thanks you all for the possibility given to improve her family's living conditions.
